This section from GCSE Bitesize gives a brief introduction to transforming graphs. It has an interactive tool which allows you to move the graph of y=x2 and see how this movement changes the equation. There is a test available via a tab and interactive questions throughout the section.
Topics: Translation of graphs
This collection of 8 webpages from BBC Bitesize covers most aspects of transformations including enlargement from a centre, plus fractional and negative scale factors.

Topics: Transformations : Enlargements –including fractional and negative scale factors
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.
