This is level 6: mixed questions without diagrams. You can earn a trophy if you get at least 9 questions correct and you do this activity online.

If the answer to a question is a pair of coordinates, you need to type in the brackets and comma like this $$(2,3)$$

 1. What are the coordinates of the point $$(6,3)$$ after it has been translated by the vector $$\begin{pmatrix} 6 \\ 3 \\ \end{pmatrix}$$ ? 2. What are the coordinates of the point $$(1,-6)$$ after it has been translated by the vector $$\begin{pmatrix} -2 \\ -4 \\ \end{pmatrix}$$ ? 3. What are the coordinates of the point $$(-3,4)$$ after it has been reflected in the line $$y = x + 3$$ ? 4. What are the coordinates of the point $$(-5,-6)$$ after it has been reflected in the line $$y = 5 - x$$ ? 5. What are the coordinates of the point $$(-3,-5)$$ after it has been rotated through an angle of $$180^{\circ}$$ about the point $$(0,1)$$ ? 6. What are the coordinates of the point $$(6,-3)$$ after it has been rotated through an angle of $$90^{\circ}$$ anticlockwise about the point $$(-5,0)$$ ? 7. What are the coordinates of the point $$(5,3)$$ after an enlargement of scale factor $$2$$ with centre of enlargement at $$(0,1)$$ ? 8. What are the coordinates of the point $$(2,-1)$$ after an enlargement of scale factor $$3$$ with centre of enlargement at $$(-4,-6)$$ ? 9. What are the coordinates of the point $$(-3,-2)$$ after it has been reflected in the line $$x = 1$$ and then rotated through $$180^{\circ}$$ about $$(-1,1)$$ ? 10. What are the coordinates of the point $$(6,5)$$ after it has been translated by the vector $$\begin{pmatrix} -5 \\ -2 \\ \end{pmatrix}$$ then enlarged with a scale factor $$3$$ and a centre of enlargement at $$(-1,-6)$$ ? 11. What are the coordinates of the point $$(2,6)$$ after an enlargement of scale factor $$3$$ with centre of enlargement at $$(-1,5)$$ followed by a reflection in the line $$y = 6$$ ? 12. What are the coordinates of the point $$(-2,-5)$$ after it has been rotated through an angle of $$90^{\circ}$$ anticlockwise about the point $$(6,4)$$ followed by being translated by the vector $$\begin{pmatrix} 5 \\ 1 \\ \end{pmatrix}$$ followed by an enlargement of scale factor $$6$$ with centre of enlargement at $$(6,5)$$ ?

Mathematicians are not the people who find Maths easy; they are the people who enjoy how mystifying, puzzling and hard it is. Are you a mathematician?

Comment recorded on the 1 May 'Starter of the Day' page by Phil Anthony, Head of Maths, Stourport High School:

"What a brilliant website. We have just started to use the 'starter-of-the-day' in our yr9 lessons to try them out before we change from a high school to a secondary school in September. This is one of the best resources on-line we have found. The kids and staff love it. Well done an thank you very much for making my maths lessons more interesting and fun."

Comment recorded on the 18 September 'Starter of the Day' page by Mrs. Peacock, Downe House School and Kennet School:

"My year 8's absolutely loved the "Separated Twins" starter. I set it as an optional piece of work for my year 11's over a weekend and one girl came up with 3 independant solutions."

Without Lifting

Can you draw these diagrams without lifting your pencil from the paper? This is an interactive version of the traditional puzzle. Some diagrams are possible while others are not. What is the rule?

There are answers to this exercise but they are available in this space to teachers, tutors and parents who have logged in to their Transum subscription on this computer.

A Transum subscription unlocks the answers to the online exercises, quizzes and puzzles. It also provides the teacher with access to quality external links on each of the Transum Topic pages and the facility to add to the collection themselves.

Subscribers can manage class lists, lesson plans and assessment data in the Class Admin application and have access to reports of the Transum Trophies earned by class members.

Go Maths

Learning and understanding Mathematics, at every level, requires learner engagement. Mathematics is not a spectator sport. Sometimes traditional teaching fails to actively involve students. One way to address the problem is through the use of interactive activities and this web site provides many of those. The Go Maths page is an alphabetical list of free activities designed for students in Secondary/High school.

There is a printable worksheet to go with this activity.

The old version of the Transformations online exercise can be found here.

Answers to this exercise are available lower down this page when you are logged in to your Transum account. If you don’t yet have a Transum subscription one can be very quickly set up if you are a teacher, tutor or parent.

Help

You may want to open the Graph Plotter in a new tab to help you answer these questions.

Alternatively you could print some Graph Paper, have it laminated then use a non-permanent pen as a handy working resource.

Don't wait until you have finished the exercise before you click on the 'Check' button. Click it often as you work through the questions to see if you are answering them correctly. You can double-click the 'Check' button to make it float at the bottom of your screen.
