TIMSS items require students to find the symmetries of given figures, and represent the result of a transformation (translation, reflection, rotation) on a shape. Enlargement is addressed through students recognising the properties of congruent and similar triangles and quadrilaterals.
These units of work will improve students' fluency with transformations:
Students will also benefit from working independently or collaboratively on the following student e-ako on the Geometry and Measurement pathways (information about e-ako maths):
G4.10: Recognising transformations in patterns
M4.3: Angles, transformations, and properties of quadrilaterals
M5.3: Investigating similar shapes
