Topics: Translation of graphs

Transformations and enlargements (BBC Bitesize)

This collection of 8 webpages from BBC Bitesize covers most aspects of transformations including enlargement from a centre, plus fractional and negative scale factors. There are interactive questions spaced periodically throughout the explanations to help you check your understanding. There is also a short test which can be accessed via the tab labelled test.

Representing and Combining Transformations (Mathematics Assessment Resource Service)

This is one of many resources produced by the Shell Centre at the University of Nottingham for the MARS project in the USA. There are comprehensive teacher notes and excellent student resources examining transformations of 2d shapes. The activity covers reflection, rotation and translations but uses some American terms which you may wish to change. The teachers’ notes are particularly useful to anyone wishing to get to grips with the big idea(s) behind the topic.

Topics: Transformations
