Developing an Exam Question: Transformations SS8

In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students learn to use past examination papers creatively, recognise and visualise transformations of 2D shapes, transform triangles and other 2D shapes by translation, rotation and reflection and combinations of these. They develop their ability to generalise and explore their own questions in this context. Most students will have met the concepts of ‘rotation’, ‘reflection’ and ‘translation’ before, but may not have a deep understanding of them. In this session, students are provided with copies of a question
similar to those found in GCSE examinations. They answer the question, then analyse the content and skills required to obtain the correct solution. They develop the task by asking further questions and by changing the task in various ways. They develop their own
examination questions and attempt to answer the questions designed by others. (GCSE Grades D-F)
