Shahriyar HajghassemHost: Shahriyar is a Maths Teacher at a School in Northwest London, teaching years 7 to 11. He graduated from the University of Warwick in 2013 and set off to China for two years teaching IGCSE and A-Level Economics.

In this class you are going to learn about transformations.  Transformations change the size or position of shapes. A reflection is a type of transformation. It 'maps' one shape onto another. When a shape is reflected a mirror image is created. If the shape and size remain unchanged, the two images are congruent (Exactly the same). In this lesson you will learn how to draw a mirror line, as well as reflect shapes on coordinate axis. Students will also learn about diagonal reflections which take place in the lines y = x and y = - x. Finally, students will be shown how to describe a reflection that maps one shape onto another
