A powerpoint on all four transformations - Translations, reflections, rotations and enlargements. Suitable for years 8-11 preparing for the GCSE Maths exams. There are questions to test knowledge as well as step by step guides on how to do each transformation. Leave a good review for more good quality resources. Suitable for a 60 minute lesson.
Excellent one page resource, called a 'onesie'. Well differentiated, looking at basic transformations. Well received by students - not busy, but full of information and opportunities to progress. Excellent starter/plenary.
Includes a 'rate yourself' section, keywords, 'how to'.
Transformations Pack: Students must reflect, rotate and translate different shapes to reveal the secret pictures!
Translations Mystery Picture
Suitable for younger students just learning translations and vectors.
Reflections Mystery Pictures 1 & 2
Also suitable for younger students just starting to learn about reflections in a mirror line. The second version uses the co-ordinates axes and the line y = -x as mirror lines.
Rotations Mystery Pictures 1 & 2
Students will need to be able to rotate 90 degrees and 180 degrees about a point. Most students will need tracing paper. The first version is on the co-ordinate plane and all rotations are about the origin.
Mixed Transformations Pictures 1 & 2
These activities require students to use translations, reflections and rotations.
Combined Transformations Pictures 1 & 2
These are the most difficult pictures to complete and require students to do multiple transformations to each object in order to find its place. The second picture takes place on the co-ordinate plane.
Answers are included and can be checked at a glance, making it easy for students and teachers to know whether things are on track!
Students first group the cards in to the four types of transformations. This will promote discussion of how to spot each type.
Then students match each card to a description. Many of the descriptions are similar, promoting discussion of common misconceptions.
There is also one extra description of each type of transformation. This is to stop students from not checking the last of each transformation, but also allows students to draw each type of transformation.
This activity would be an ideal way to lead in to 'Describing Transformations' after covering 'Drawing Transformations'.
When it comes to transformations, it can be so difficult to find good worksheets and interactive examples to fully explain to your classes! Here are some lessons I put together that I find really helpful for any class! I used this bundle of lessons on a middle ability year 10 class, but I have also used the worksheets for KS3! Easily adaptable for any class!
All lessons include:
5 a day starter and answers,
differentiated questions with answers,
progress and tick slide.
Recap on how to name vertical and horizontal lines, with questions and examples on how to reflect shapes through a horizontal and vertical line. Extension sheet on reflection in diagonal lines. Worksheets also included to print!
Translating coordinates to introduce the method, with worded instructions. Moves onto translating objects with vectors. Also has a true/false activity and all worksheets included at the end of the powerpoint.
Includes questions on rotational symmetry and order of symmetry. Moves on to how to rotate objects using direction, degrees and centre of rotation. All worksheets included at the end of the powerpoint. Includes ABCD multiple choice plenary.
Consolidation of transformations!
Whole lesson activity that uses all transformations to come together to spell out a word. Great way to finish this sequence of lessons!
Also includes learning objective sheet for all transformations! Can be used as an activity or as a homework. Also has a self assessment area for students to tick.
Hope you are able to use these lessons and you and your classes enjoy them. If you do like them, or there is anything you think I can do to improve them, please comment or rate! Thanks =]!
This is my poster, which provides a really useful summary of Transformations. I give students the A5 version for revision and have a large version on the wall somewhere.

Students should be given a copy of the grid and the the cut out transformed graphs from the answer grid. They then need to stick these on the grid.
Transformations of Graphs 1 and 2 contain some functions and some blank grids.
Set some transformations and then ask the students to sketch the transformed functions.
Seven worksheets for exploring the effect of transformations on graphs.
Learn how parabolas and cubic graphs can be sketched quickly by looking at their equations and seeing how they are transformed from the basic y = x² and y = x³ graphs.
Transform graphs of undefined functions by looking at the graph's new equation and deciding what transformation it represents. Translations, reflections, reflections and stretches.
These worksheets include answers and are suitable both for higher level GCSE work and for extra support for A-level students who need to be able to understand transformations fluently.

This is pretty basic describing of transformation on a co-ordinate grid with a few "challenge" questions. It involves reflection (in x and y axes), rotation (centre (0,0), translation and enlargement (centre (0,0)). The "challenge" questions involve reflecting in other lines including y=x, vertical and horizontal; rotation away from the origin and an enlargement away from the origin. I have left it in MS Word so you can edit the challenge questions out.
Recommended by TES Panel. An investigation which allows the learners to find the rules for transformations plus some example questions. I have included copies with just translation and reflection for GCSE and copies with translation, stretch, and reflection for A level (or as extension for GCSE). PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT.
This resource covers both performing and describing transformations. It is designed as a revision resource for foundation AQA students prior to their GCSE examination. It is in publisher and can be printed as a booklet onto A3 paper (folded) in order to turn it into an A4 booklet.
There is four pages. Page 1 - teacher demonstrates the four transformations (see image). Page 2 - six practice questions that ask students to perform a variety of transformations / combined transformations. Page 3 - teacher demonstrates how to describe transformation. Page 4 - eight questions that ask students to describe single transformations.
Pages 1 and 3 are included in the powerpoint presentation should the teacher wish to demonstrate on the board. Personally, I think it is best to use a visualiser.
It covers transformations, reflections (including y=x), rotations and enlargements (positive and fractional). It therefore covers topics tested on AQA Foundation grade 1 to grade 5.
Developed from the new AQA Physics specification. A2.
Describe how transformers work and ways in which energy losses can be minimised
Describe how lamination is used within transformers
Explain the effect of eddy currents on transformer efficiency
I have used his PowerPoint with my year 13 pupils. It covers all parts of the new spec, particularly efficiency. there are worked examples built in and an easy to read font of 24.
This is a differentiated resource aimed at teachers and tutors that are delivering the OCR A Level Physics course. This lesson covers Unit 6: Transformers.
Throughout the resource, there are a number of examples and AfL points to makes sure that students are moving along with the new ideas, with answers provided for all questions. There are also some worked examples to show students how to get to answers.
The learning objectives and the associated links to the OCR A Level Physics A (H556) Specificaition covered through this resource are:
Be able to find the input PD provided or output PD supplied by a transformer
Explain the importance of transformers in the national grid.
Apply P=IV to the efficiency of a transformer, an explain how we can change the structure of a transformer to improve efficiency.
NB: These specification links are correct at the point of uploading (28/08/17) and will be monitored for updates.
The resources included are intended to be used in the following manner:
- Transformers New.pptx (39 slides)
This is the teaching resource and designed to be used as the front of classroom resource. This includes answers for student marking opportunities. Make sure that you go through the resource to see how the animations fit in with each of the slides. This resource is intended to last over 2-3 hours of teaching.
- Transformers New.pptx (27 slides)
This resource is designed to be printed and provided to students as a students handout. All answers have been removed, and key pieces of informtion remain as to be a revision support. This does not have to be used.
All resources are ready to use to teach, but can be adapted to fit other exam boards, specifications and order of teaching.
