Translations using Vector Notation

Students learn how to translate an object on a grid using vector notation.  As learning progresses they describe translations in addition to performing them.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to translate an object in the first quadrant using a translation vector.
  • Most students should be able to translate an object on Cartesian axes using a translation vector.
  • Some students should be able to perform and describe a translation on Cartesian axes using a translation vector.

Sharing an Amount to a Given Ratio

There are three common methods for sharing an amount to a given ratio.  Depending on the age group and ability range I am teaching I would choose one approach over the other two.

Plotting Scatter Graphs and Understanding Correlation

To introduce plotting scatter graphs and understanding correlation I ask students to think about the relationships between different variables and to describe how they might be related. Here’s my starter activity which students discuss in pairs then present to me on mini-whiteboards. When the students have had time to discuss the matching pairs we talk […]

Plotting Quadratic Graphs on Cartesian Axes

In recent examiner reports it is noted how important it is for students to understand the properties of a parabola  when plotting quadratic graphs on Cartesian axes.  Students who have a secure understanding of parabolas can use them to correct miscalculated values in their table of results and are more likely to attain full marks […]
