Translating Shapes using Vectors

Students learn about translating shapes using vectors. As learning progresses they move from performing translations on a grid to describing translations using vector notation.The start of the lesson is used to recap describing a rotation or reflection that will map an object onto an image. The plenary is based around a jigsaw puzzle where students give their answers in the form of translation vectors.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to translate an object on a grid using vector notation.
  • Most students should be able to perform and describe translations on a grid using vector notation.
  • Some students should be able to perform and describe a translation on Cartesian axes using a translation vector.

Rounding to a significant figure

When I teach rounding to a significant figure, I ask the class to discuss in pairs or small groups a definition for the word significant.  It is a word that all the students have heard before but not all are able to define. After 2 or 3 minutes of conversation I ask the students to […]

Calculating Instantaneous Rates of Change

When calculating instantaneous rates of change students need to  visualise the properties of the gradient for a straight line graph.   I use the starter activity to see if they can match four graphs with their corresponding equations. The only clue is the direction and steepness of the red lines in relation to the blue line […]

Converting Between Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Fractions, decimals and percentages are ways of showing a proportion of something.  Any fraction can be written as a decimal, and any decimal can be written as a percentage.  In this blog I discuss how to use the place value table and equivalent fractions to illustrate how fractions, decimals and percentages are connected. You can […]
