These are the Transum resources related to the statement: "Pupils should be taught to sketch translations and reflections of the graph of a given function".

Here are some specific activities, investigations or visual aids we have picked out. Click anywhere in the grey area to access the resource.

- Graph Paper Flexible graph paper which can be printed or projected onto a white board as an effective visual aid.
- Straight Line Graphs Video After drawing a straight line graph learn about its equation in the form y = mx + c.
- Straight Line Graphs 10 straight line graph challenges for use with computer graph plotting software or a graphical display calculator.
- Graph Match Match the equations with the images of the corresponding graphs. A drag-and-drop activity.
- Graph Plotter An online tool to draw, display and investigate graphs of many different kinds.
- Transformations of Functions A visual aid showing how various transformations affect the graph of a function.

Here are some exam-style questions on this statement:

- "
*The graph of the curve A with equation \(y=f(x)\) is transformed to give the graph of the curve B with equation \(y=5-f(x)\).*" ... more - "
*The graph of the following equation is drawn and then reflected in the x-axis*" ... more - "
*\(f\) and \(g\) are two functions such that \(g(x)=3f(x+2)+7\).*" ... more
