A KS3-4 maths worksheet resource that can be used to review and practise concepts regarding transformations. 

There are 5 tasks each with a grid and 7 transformations. Students transform an arrow to find where the treasure is hidden. The task consists of:

  1. Translation by a vector, and reflection in horizontal and vertical lines.
  2. Translation by a vector, and reflection in horizontal, vertical and 45-degree lines.
  3. Translation by a vector, reflection in horizontal, vertical and 45-degree lines, and rotation.
  4. Translation by a vector.
  5. Rotation, reflection in a diagonal line and enlargement with negative and fractional scale factors.

There is a final grid giving an extension task for students to create their own task.

I taught this topic in y9 and reviewed it in year 10 with this excellent and engaging resource before teaching transformations of graphs.
Also as a review exercise preparing for and EOY exam.
