Transformations change the size or position of shapes. A translation is a type of transformation. A translation moves a shape up, down or from side to side but it does not change its appearance in any other way. To translate shapes in the correct direction, students will learn about vector notations, which give information about the direction in which the vertices of a shape will need to be moved. Once familiar with vector notation, translations become a relatively straight forward transformation which will enable students sitting the foundation or higher GCSE paper to pick up ‘easy marks’.
Safeguarding reminder:The safety of your child is of the utmost importance. All of our classes are pre-recorded to remove any concerns around live participation. For reruns of our past live classes, students' webcams and microphones were disabled and only the chat history, if participation was requested, is visible.
This class is suitable for all Elementary/Intermediate and Higher students studying KS4 Maths or equivalent. These students would typically be in Years 9-11 or S3-S5.
