Translation Plotter

Click on one of the shape buttons to the right of the grid to display the corresponding shape in a random position. A set of instructions for translating this shape will also appear in the blue box. Drag and drop the four circular markers to the translated position of the shape’s corners. If they are placed in the correct position the translated shape will be drawn on the screen.

Enlargements

There are three parts to this resource:

Introduction to enlargements: This is an ideal resource for introducing pupils to the concept of enlargement and scale factor. .

Enlargements without a centre of enlargement: The resource enables the user to enlarge a given shape by dragging the vertices of a polygon.

Enlargements with a centre of enlargement: This is a very powerful resource that is perfect for exploring the enlargement of shapes using a centre of enlargement.
