Making Connections

Connections within Mathematics

Pupils should make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems. They should also apply their mathematical knowledge to science and other subjects.

Making connections to this topic in adjacent year groups

Year 5

  • identify, describe and represent the position of a shape following a reflection or translation, using the appropriate language, and know that the shape has not changed.

Key Stage 3

  • recognise, sketch and produce graphs of linear and quadratic functions of one variable with appropriate scaling, using equations in x and y and the Cartesian plane
  • interpret mathematical relationships both algebraically and graphically
  • identify properties of, and describe the results of translations, rotations and reflections applied to given figures
  • identify and construct congruent triangles, and construct similar shapes by enlargement, including on coordinate grids

Cross-curricular and real life connections

In geography, learners will encounter coordinates through map work.

In Design & Technology, learners may be required to use their knowledge of translation, in particular, scaling up and down.

Coordinates and translation may also be used when designing rooms, planning buildings and floor layouts, or when scaling drawings or patterns in Art & Design.
