Summary

This unit continues the geometry work from Unit 4 focusing on the transformation of shapes and the effect of these transformation.  With clear illustrations to enhance learning, this unit considers all four transformations of shapes, performing and describing each transformation.  The effect of each transformation on the properties of shapes are investigated and the impact of combined transformation explored.  Enlargements by positive, negative and fractional scale factor are considered and the link between enlargement and similarity explored.  This work is further developed into solving problems involving similarity and congruence.  The conditions for congruence of triangles are investigated and angle problems are solved using congruence conditions.

What people say...

As I am non-specialist teaching the new specification of AQA GCSE Chemistry for the first time this year, these resources have been invaluable to me. The presentations are thorough and well illustrated. The teacher guide and power point presentation leads you through the topics logically. 

Helen Webb. Science teacher, Lutterworth College

Supply teachers or cover supervisors can be given the PowerPoint presentations to run the lesson. I only wish I had this available when I was head of department. I would have been able to set work quickly, knowing that the material was covered, explanations were sound and the practice questions were well supported.
