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 twodimensional shapes. Identify line and rotational symmetries 
Task description : Students take three battleships designed in level E, plus 3 nonsymmetrical 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.
