#### Pattern Blocks Chapter 5 - Transformations

Years of research on how children learn has shown that the use of manipulatives such as pattern blocks is a powerful tool for developing conceptual understanding of mathematics.Students enjoy working with pattern blocks when they have been allowed time for free explorations. What seems like play to adults is an important part of building confidence and motivation in children.Using Root 7’s Pattern Block resources enables students to be:• Actively involved in doing math, which motivates them and builds confidence. • Provided with excellent opportunities to work together, discuss mathematical ideas, and verbalize their thinking.• Given concrete representations of mathematical ideas, thus providing a visual model to refer to.• Provided with Extra Practice questions to extend and reinforce their knowledge and understanding.How to use• Assign one or more Activity questions to each student and allow them to work individually, in pairs or in groups• Observe the students as they work and ask questions, or ask them to explain their work, to ensure they understand the mathematics• Ensure they record their work as this helps them clarify their thinking and reinforce their understanding.• The More Practice questions are important as they are designed to make the connection from “Hands-on” to “paper and pencil” ie from the concrete to the more abstract symbolic representation.The activities in Chapter 5: Transformations helps students increase their knowledge and understanding of various concepts of Transformations, including Symmetry, Translation, Reflection, Rotation, and Combinations of Transformations.Each unit includes Teacher Notes and Answers.

#### Transformations - GCSE Maths Revision

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 all four 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.

#### Plans Elevation GCSE Revision or Lesson

Plan and Elevation Tools. Two great animations included. Have you lost those multi cubes or you just don't have them. Look no further these 2 animations will replace the need for those cubes. 2 Animated tools giving you control. TOOL 1 is used to demonstrate the Plan, Front and Side view of a 3D Shape, there are ready made various 3D shapes to choose from, very easy to control. TOOL 2 is used to question, animated so you can use both tools to move the 3D Shapes to show students how each view looks, each view is different colour. You can take colour off to make it more difficult.
