Describe translations, reflections in an axis, and rotations of multiples of 90° on the Cartesian plane using coordinates. Identify line and rotational symmetries (ACMMG181) * understanding transformations to help identify the movement of shapes and rotational and line symmetry * describing patterns and investigating different ways to produce the same transformational changes, such as using two successive reflections to provide the same result as a translation, or using digital technologies to experiment with, create and recreate patterns using combinations of flips, slides, turns and enlargements or reductions * building on students’ understanding of the reflection and rotation of figures, and reflection and rotational symmetry, to identify combinations of transformations that produce the same result, and to distinguish this as an example of how mathematical results can often be obtained using multiple alternative methods
