You’re downloading this resource from TimBurnham


A lesson plan and set of resources for teaching Translations. Aimed at KS3 (11-14 year olds) but it does include vector notation so you could use this as part of a lesson for GCSE (14-16 year olds). Includes a great England goal from Euro '96 which students recreate using translation vectors. A lesson plan and worksheet are also included. Store the video file in the same directory as the PowerPoint then when you double-click the video in the presentation it will play the short clip. Enjoy!
