Coordinates and translations

  • Year group: Year 4
  • Term: Summer
  • Topic: Geometry
  • Duration: 1 weeks
  • Keystage: KS2
  • Age Range: 8 to 9 yrs
  • Unit can be taught out of sequence: Y
  • Week Range: 11

In this chapter, pupils describe positions on a 2D grid as coordinates in the first quadrant.

Although pupils will have worked with graphs in previous chapters and topics, this is the first time they’ve been formally introduced to coordinates. The focus is on the first quadrant (where the x- and y-axis values are positive), as pupils are yet to meet negative numbers.

In time, pupils learn to draw a pair of axes, including equal scales and integer labels. They read, write and use pairs of coordinates, (eg, (2,5)), including using ICT tools to plot them.

Pupils describe positions as coordinates, as well as movements between positions as translations of a given unit to the left, right, up and down. They also plot specified points and draw sides to complete a given polygon.

Reasoning - Problem Solving - Number and Geometry - March 9th

Today's problems from the White Rose Maths Hub. There are two problems for KS1 and two for KS2.

In KS1 problem children having to reason with money by finding the right combination of items. The second problem is a multistep problem involving the four operations.

At KS2 children solve problems involving shapes and lines on a unlabelled co-ordinate axes.

Every day in March the White Rose Maths Hub is aiming to put out a question of the day.

Mathematics Mastery

Co-ordinates and translations

Mathematical discussion is a key element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

Talk Tasks are a brilliant way of enabling pupils to develop their mathematical language, thinking, understanding and confidence.

This activity explores the concept of co-ordinates and translations.

• Talk tasks are best completed in mixed attainment pairs, with pupils taking turns to listen and construct arguments
• Emphasis is on discussion rather than the solution, encouraging pupils to use key language and talk in full sentences
• Ask pupils to prove their answers in a variety of ways, using the CPA approach to support mathematical understanding and number sense

Like what you see? Mathematics Mastery is a professional development programme for teachers with a mission to transform mathematics education in the UK.

This task is just a taster of the complete classroom resources we offer. We also provide in-depth development training, online CPD, specialist support and assessment tools.

We believe all elements of our programme are vital in creating lasting change – enabling every child to enjoy and succeed in mathematics.

Co-ordinates and translations

Enabling pupils to develop their mathematical reasoning skills through independent work is a key element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

This activity explores the concepts of co-ordinates and translations.

• Pupils should complete these tasks using concrete manipulatives as part of the CPA approach
• Pupils should be encouraged to explain their working in full sentences
• These tasks may be adapted with pupils working in pairs to encourage mathematical discussion

Year 6 D2 missing coordinates and translations

Two consecutive observations deemed 'Good' I laminated all types of quadrilateral the right size for cm squared paper. Thanks to those people whose work I adapted.

Describing Transformations

This is pretty basic describing of transformation on a co-ordinate grid with a few "challenge" questions. It involves reflection (in x and y axes), rotation (centre (0,0), translation and enlargement (centre (0,0)). The "challenge" questions involve reflecting in other lines including y=x, vertical and horizontal; rotation away from the origin and an enlargement away from the origin. I have left it in MS Word so you can edit the challenge questions out.
