Mathematicians are not the people who find Maths easy; they are the people who enjoy how mystifying, puzzling and hard it is. Are you a mathematician? Comment recorded on the 18 September 'Starter of the Day' page by Mrs. Peacock, Downe House School and Kennet School: "My year 8's absolutely loved the "Separated Twins" starter. I set it as an optional piece of work for my year 11's over a weekend and one girl came up with 3 independant solutions." Comment recorded on the 17 November 'Starter of the Day' page by Amy Thay, Coventry: "Thank you so much for your wonderful site. I have so much material to use in class and inspire me to try something a little different more often. I am going to show my maths department your website and encourage them to use it too. How lovely that you have compiled such a great resource to help teachers and pupils. 
Each month a newsletter is published containing details of the new additions to the Transum website and a new puzzle of the month. The newsletter is then duplicated as a podcast which is available on the major delivery networks. You can listen to the podcast while you are commuting, exercising or relaxing. Transum breaking news is available on Twitter @Transum and if that's not enough there is also a Transum Facebook page. 

Numeracy"Numeracy is a proficiency which is developed mainly in Mathematics but also in other subjects. It is more than an ability to do basic arithmetic. It involves developing confidence and competence with numbers and measures. It requires understanding of the number system, a repertoire of mathematical techniques, and an inclination and ability to solve quantitative or spatial problems in a range of contexts. Numeracy also demands understanding of the ways in which data are gathered by counting and measuring, and presented in graphs, diagrams, charts and tables."

Go MathsLearning and understanding Mathematics, at every level, requires learner engagement. Mathematics is not a spectator sport. Sometimes traditional teaching fails to actively involve students. One way to address the problem is through the use of interactive activities and this web site provides many of those. The Go Maths main page links to more activities designed for students in upper Secondary/High school.

Which Transformation?  This is an easy exercise to begin with asking you to recognise some very simple transfomations.
Level 1  Reflect a shape in a given line
Level 2  Translate a shape by a given vector
Level 3  Rotate a shape about a given point by a given angle
Level 4  Enlarge a shape from a given point by a given scale factor
Level 5  Transform a shape by a given matrix
Level 6  Mixed questions without diagrams
Level 7  Describe the transformation from the diagrams
Exam Style questions are in the style of GCSE or IB/Alevel exam paper questions and worked solutions are available for Transum subscribers.
There is a printable worksheet to go with this activity.
Finally try Blow Up, a clallenge to find all the points that could be the centre of enlargement of a shape if the image does not go off the grid. Great fun!
Click on the points where the gridlines meet to select a point. When you have selected the number of points required to complete the diagram a 'Check' button will appear.
You can select the 'Show' button if you don't know how to do a question. Refresh the page when you think you understand and try for yourself.
You can earn a Transum trophy for each level if you get at least nine questions correct.

"If you having difficulties when you get to Level 3 Rotations you are not alone. Rotations are difficult without using tracing paper to help. I stumbled across this video on YouTube in which George Turner shows the windmill method:
