Semester 2 Topic 5 Level G

Task Name : Battleships Task Level : G (Grade 6)
Semester : 2 Topic : Transformations VC Strand : Location and Transformation
Web Address :
Equipment Needed : Grid template (sheet)
Victorian Curriculum outcome : Investigate combinations of translations, reflections and rotations, with and without the use of digital technologies.
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 and rotate the shapes relative to their position in the original quadrant; in another, they rotate and translate the shapes; and in the last, they translate and reflect 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.
