**Task Name : **Battleships |
**Task Level : **F (Grade 5) |

**Semester : **2 |
**Topic :** Transformations |
**VC Strand :** Location and Transformation |

**Web Address : **http://maths.crusoecollege.vic.edu.au/ltfF |

**Equipment Needed : **Grid template (sheet) |

**Victorian Curriculum outcome : **Describe translations, reflections and rotations of two-dimensional shapes. Identify line and rotational symmetries |

**Task description :** Students take three battleships designed in level E, plus 3 non-symmetrical battleships, and place them in one quadrant of the grid template. In the next quadrant, they reflect the shapes relative to their position in the original quadrant; in another, they rotate the shapes; and in the last, they translate the shapes. |

**Assessment options : **Grid sheet filled out or digital equivalent |

**Teacher notes : **This task needs level E to be completed first. Be aware that at this level, the grid is not a Cartesian plane, and students are not required to transform around an x or y axis. Students should assume that the ships stay in the same place in each quadrant, and then the transformations are applied to them. |
