Describing Transformations (Foldable)

This resource covers the Maths GCSE 9-1 topic of describing transformations on shapes. There are five revision foldables, each foldable requires students to describe the shown transformation that maps the black shape to the grey shaded shape. The five foldables are

  • Describing transformations; this includes one of each of the four transformations; translation, enlargement, reflection and rotation.
  • Describing reflections; pupils need to describe fully the four reflections including axis reflections and reflection in a diagonal line
  • Describing rotations; pupils need to describe fully the four rotations.
  • Describing translations; pupils need to describe fully the four translations.
  • Describing transformations; pupils need to describe fully the four enlargements, including a positive , fractional and two negative scale factors.

Foldables can be used as a revision or summary exercise at the end of a topic. As the answers are hidden pupils can use these to ‘test’ themselves or ask someone else such as a parent to test them.
