              Translating Functions

              Students learn about translating functions and describing graphical transformations in the form f(x+a) for horizontal translations and f(x) + a for vertical translations.  As learning progresses they are challenged to describe combinations of the two using the correct function notation.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to recognise a horizontal and vertical translation from function notation.
              • Most students should be able to perform and describe a vertical and horizontal translation using function notation.
              • Some students should be able to derive the equation of a transformed function in terms of y.

              Behaviour Management in a Mathematics Lesson

              As we approach the start of the next term I thought I would share some tips on behaviour management in a mathematics lesson. These are things that I have picked up over the years and have worked well for me. I am sure there are opposing viewpoints and you may find some of these tips […]
