Back to basics
1. Autograph origins
What is it? A video introduction to combined transformations
What users say "The puzzle at the end of the video is an excellent example of how Autograph can be used to push the more able by getting them thinking about multiple transformations."
2. Transformation time
What is it? A collection of worksheets, activities and lesson plans on the topic of transformations
What users say "Amazing resource, very helpful."
3. Shape things up
What is it? A simple worksheet that asks students to reflect colourful shapes
What users say "A beautifully presented resource. Nice and easy to edit and simplify if necessary, thanks to straightforward formatting. Very adaptable for varying levels."
4. Memory aid
What is it? A collective memory activity on transformations
What users say "So simple yet so effective. The task involves team work, the effective communication of mathematical language and is a great way for students to revise a topic."
5. D'oh easy
What is it? An engaging starter activity for a lesson on enlargement, themed around The Simpsons
What users say "Brilliant. I'm covering lessons for some rather challenging pupils who aren't given interesting lesson plans. This should give them something to think about."
bit.lyDohEasy 6 Snakes and adders
What is it? A fun way to practise translations using vectors, built around the game snakes and ladders
What users say "Absolutely great. Using with an SEN class who I know will love it."
7. Rotary club
What is it? Two Autograph activities on transformations that lead students through drawing a shape, reflection, rotation and translation
What users say "Ideal to put in a network folder that is accessible to students so they can type their answers in the boxes provided. Nice to see Autograph used imaginatively and not just for straight-line graphs."
8. Reflection box
What is it? An investigation that asks students to look at the results of reflecting a shape through two mirror lines
What users say "A rich task that encourages students to investigate what happens when you perform two successive reflections on a shape."
9. Better shape up
What is it? A comprehensive package of lessons on the four types of transformations
What users say "Wow, these are quite simply the best maths teaching resources I have ever seen online."
10. Jigsaw gyrations
What is it? A jigsaw activity that asks students to rotate shapes around centres of rotation to create a word
What users say "Have just tried this as a starter activity and the kids loved it. Most wanted to carry on with it even though they had been asked to stop."
