A Resource to Support Work on Transformations

Stage: 4 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1

This resources contains a series of interactivities designed to support work on transformations at Key Stage 4.

problem icon

Parallel Parking

Stage: 4

Scientist Bryan Rickett has a vision of the future - and it is one in which self-parking cars prowl the tarmac plains, hunting down suitable parking spots and manoeuvring elegantly into them.

problem icon

Footprints

Stage: 5 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:2 Challenge Level:2

Make a footprint pattern using only reflections.

problem icon

The Use of Mathematics in Computer Games

Stage: 5

An account of how mathematics is used in computer games including geometry, vectors, transformations, 3D graphics, graph theory and simulations.

problem icon

Curve Fitter 2

Stage: 5 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:2 Challenge Level:2

Can you construct a cubic equation with a certain distance between its turning points?

problem icon

Paint Rollers for Frieze Patterns.

Stage: 3 and 4

Proofs that there are only seven frieze patterns involve complicated group theory. The symmetries of a cylinder provide an easier approach.

problem icon

Which Quadratic?

Stage: 4 and 5 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1

This task develops knowledge of transformation of graphs. By framing and asking questions a member of the team has to find out which mathematical function they have chosen.

problem icon

The Frieze Tree

Stage: 3 and 4

Patterns that repeat in a line are strangely interesting. How many types are there and how do you tell one type from another?

problem icon

Sine Problem

Stage: 5 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1

In this 'mesh' of sine graphs, one of the graphs is the graph of the sine function. Find the equations of the other graphs to reproduce the pattern.

problem icon

Grouping Transformations

Stage: 3, 4 and 5

An introduction to groups using transformations, following on from the October 2006 Stage 3 problems.

problem icon

Sketching Families of Graphs

Stage: 3, 4 and 5 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1

In this trail, a new type of NRICH resource, learn about transformations of graphs. Given patterns made from families of graphs find all the equations in the family.

Reflect Again

Stage: 5 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:3 Challenge Level:3 Challenge Level:3

Follow hints to investigate the matrix which gives a reflection of the plane in the line y=tanx. Show that the combination of two reflections in intersecting lines is a rotation.

problem icon

Rots and Refs

Stage: 5 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1

Follow hints using a little coordinate geometry, plane geometry and trig to see how matrices are used to work on transformations of the plane.

Frieze Patterns in Cast Iron

Stage: 3 and 4

A gallery of beautiful photos of cast ironwork friezes in Australia with a mathematical discussion of the classification of frieze patterns.

problem icon

Take a Square

Stage: 4 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:3 Challenge Level:3 Challenge Level:3

Cut off three right angled isosceles triangles to produce a pentagon. With two lines, cut the pentagon into three parts which can be rearranged into another square.
