Here are a selection of resources i have made on translation where the students are thinking about the effects of the transformations on the co-ordinates. These can be drawn but students will have a chance to notice patterns and see how each transformation changes the x and y co-ordinate. The mixed starter is one that combines all the transformations that produce congruent shapes.translationTranslationrotationRotationenlargementEnlargement with Negative Scale Factor

Here’s a mixed transformation starter. I used Geogebra to show the solutions but students don’t need to draw them to solve this. I Encourage students to think about what will happen to the coordinates after a reflection etc.

and now we are on to rotation



I recently created and shared this question on fractions with a year 8 class

I received the following responses. We had a good discussion about decimals in fractions and scales on a number line and also about dealing with fractions with different denominators.



Here is a match up activity where students have to find the 3 that are not equivalent to the other 9 expressions. Students can discuss cancelling fractions and what can and can not be done when working with fractions
