OCR Maths: Higher GCSE - Check In Test 9.01 Plane isometric transformations

A 10 question test on Plane isometric transformations, comprising: 5 questions on procedural calculations; 3 questions on reasoning and communicating mathematically; and 2 problem solving questions. At the end of the test there is an extension activity which will allow more able students to stretch themselves. This resource is ideal for either formative or summative assessment and can be used in lesson time as a topic assessment, starter or plenary activity or for homework or revision. Topics include: Reflection: reflect a simple shape in a given mirror line, and identify the mirror line from a shape and its image. Rotation: rotate a simple shape clockwise or anti-clockwise through a multiple of 90° about a given centre of rotation. Translation: use a column vector to describe a translation of a simple shape, and perform a specified translation. Reflection: Identify a mirror line , or from a simple shape and its image under reflection. Rotation: Identify the centre, angle and sense of a rotation from a simple shape and its image under rotation. Combinations of transformations: Perform a sequence of isometric transformations (reflections, rotations or translations), on a simple shape. Describe the resulting transformation and the changes and invariance achieved. Visit http://www.ocr.org.uk/qualifications/by-subject/mathematics/ for more resource ideas.

Fully resourced lesson on geometric patterns is Islamic Art

Fully resourced lesson on geometric patterns is Islamic Art

Most suitable for key stage 3. Looks at geometry in Islamic Art. Students then create their designs using either compasses (higher groups) or isometric/square grids (may be better with lower groups). Probably good for end of module/term lesson Resources in the lesson gathered from all over the place, but thought it would be useful to have in one place as a single lesson.

Congruent Triangles

Congruent Triangles

Congruent Triangles 1.Explanation sheets for Describing the Congruence of TWO or** MORE TRIANGLES**. 2.Differentiated worksheet with answer sheet . I have included two activities. One I would use for lower ability pupils that need to see that by rotating, sliding or flipping a triangle to overlap another shows congruence. The other describes the rules. Each activity has the same assessment of learning activities but these could be used individually as their are two should you wish to use both activities on different days. 3.Plenary Mix and Match Game forDescribing the Congruence of TWO or** MORE TRIANGLES** based on the activity.Game suitable for Starter/Plenary/Revision/Link activity Describing the Congruence of TWO or** MORE TRIANGLES**… I hope that it works for you. I would go through the materials first and have an idea of how you will present it. You will need data projector and laptop.

Triangle properties revision activity

Triangle properties revision activity

An always, sometimes, never activity looking at various properties of triangles (angles, sides, perimeter, area, symmetry and a few more). Includes a wonderfully sneaky (but potentially confusing!) example of triangle area sometimes being the product of the lengths of all three sides. A good way of stimulating discussion, revising a range of topics and exposing misconceptions. Please review and give feedback, whether you like the activity or whether you don’t!

Maths: Lexicology Across the Curriculum - Bingo.

There are eight different bingo cards in this resource. I do not call out the affixes (prefixes and suffixes), I elicit the name of the affix through a series of concept questions. This is a great resource to improve knowledge and understanding of prefixes and suffixes which will ultimately develop a Mathematical Lexicon. Bingo as a ten minute starter creates a fantastic learning environment. For more resources visit my website www.lexicologyforreading.co.uk

Crack The Safe - Symmetry and Transformation

Crack The Safe - Symmetry and Transformation

Six “Crack The Safe” activities where there are more possible answers than questions thus avoiding students guessing or answering by process of elimination. These are designed to be starters or plenaries but obviously the choices is yours. There is a symmetry (both reflective and rotational) activity, plus one each on reflection, rotation, translation and enlargement before a final sheet on mixed transformations (not including enlargement however as this proved problematic in the format!).

ROTATIONAL SYMMETRY GCSE FOUNDATION

ROTATIONAL SYMMETRY GCSE FOUNDATION

An introduction to rotational symmetry: a topic for some reason all lower ability students accept and then forget! The fully animated powerpoint shows the tracing of a shape and spinning it around 1 full revolution. Other examples are then shown. The fully differentiated resource goes from 1 star (multi choice) to 3 star (demanding complete the shape so that it has rotational symmetry type questions). All tasks can be printed and written on, although you may have to adjust the dimensions of the sheet so that it prints near perfect square grids (this will affect the quarter turns). Answers are not given

Geometry Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Maths Shape Measure

Geometry Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Maths Shape Measure

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘Geometry’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Complete transformations of shapes (translation, reflection, rotation and enlargement)

Complete transformations of shapes (translation, reflection, rotation and enlargement)

Over the years I have built up a rather hefty transformations notebook file. I believe this includes everything that needs to be included to be able to teach everything on transformations of shapes (including stretching the most able as well as scaffolding for lower ability). It includes activities which can be taken off and used as a worksheet (some answers included) as well as quizzes (with answers as well). This is my go to for any year group throughout KS3 and KS4 when teaching transformations as i can pick out the best bits. I hope this is useful for your too. Enjoy! After the transformations there are some slides on congruent triangles, similarity and symmetry as this can lead on nicely after transformations.

Transformations Matching Card Sort

Transformations Matching Card Sort

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'.

Rotation 90 180 270 degrees,  first  lesson for weaker students.

Rotation 90 180 270 degrees, first lesson for weaker students.

Designed as a first lesson on rotating shapes. I used Mrbartonmaths's powerpoint as a start for the demonstration, but needed some thoughts of turning 90, 180 and 270 degrees. Plus clockwise and anti clockwise. The worksheets were also found on TES, but I do not remember the author, Sorry.

Similar to codebreaker puzzles, a maths-related word is revealed after completing calculations. Each puzzle contains a grid. Within each box is a calculation and a letter. Pupils circle any boxes containing errors. Then they assemble letters from the circled boxes to reveal the hidden maths word. (In the rounding puzzle pupils find the numbers that don’t round to specified target numbers and in some of the fractions puzzles, pupils must find non-equivalent fractions etc). Puzzles can be completed individually or in pairs / groups. In many puzzles there is an extension question / challenge linked to the hidden word, which on some may require a little research if time. Pupils often forget or avoid checking their work for errors so it’s great to get them carefully checking in these puzzles. Spotting common errors may help them remember to check their own work and help them avoid common errors themselves. Thank you for your interest in my resources. I do hope your students enjoy using these puzzles. Please do consider giving a review on TES if you get a spare moment. I would be so grateful.
