Egyptian Graph Dancing: Transformation of Graphs

Egyptian Graph Dancing: Transformation of Graphs

An interactive lesson in PowerPoint for senior secondary pupils to help with transformation of graphs, in particular cubics, exponentials and logarithms. Pupils are shown how to represent these graphs in the manner of an Egyptian sand dance and then have to demonstrate the transformations. Ideal for KS4, C1, C2, C3 and C4 students.

Specify a Line - GCSE / ALevel Resource

I created this activity to encourage students to pull together everything that they know about straight lines on a coordinate plane. Of course other criteria could be added. I suggest you get one student to choose two coordinate points for another student who then works on filling in the boxes. They should leave drawing the line until last to check their work. (Or swap again and another person checks it.) I also suggest you photocopy it onto A3 to give students more room to work.

Graph Transformation Ballet

Graph Transformation Ballet

A light hearted way to recap graph transformations - with Ballet moves. Can be used as a recap starter or as a plenary once the transformations have been taught.

Core 2 - Circles

Interactive excel worksheet to demonstrate co-ordinate geometry of a circle. Suitable for AS Mathematics - Core 2 module Microsoft Excel is spreadsheet software, designed to manipulate and view numerical data such as statistics. You will need to allow macros to run when using most of the sheets available here. This can be checked by opening Excel and clicking Tools Macros Security and choosing Medium or Low security. Also, some sheets require you have Analysis ToolPak installed - this is found by clicking Tools Add ins (you may need the original MS Office disks to do this).

Autograph Video - Competition Winner!

This is the video from the 2011 Autograph/TSM Competition winner, Damian Watson. In it he shows us a great way of using Autograph to look at the meaning of the constants in quadratic equations. As a result of his video, Damian has won a place at this year's TSM Conference in Oundle in July. Congratulations! Click on the weblinks for more details of the conference and for more videos.

The circumcentres of four triangles are joined to form a quadrilateral. What do you notice about this quadrilateral as the dynamic image changes? Can you prove your conjecture?
