In this activity, we are going to find out where points end up if we make coordinates negative or positive.

Then we find out how to use coordinates to make points go in vertical, horizontal and diagonal lines.

In this activity we learn how to play with coordinates to make triangles reflect horizontally, vertically and diagonally.

Then we make them rotate!

After that we do the same thing with quadrilaterals.

Great fun!

Notes for Parents and Teachers

Coordinates are great because they allow you to draw pictures that show how Maths works. You can use them to learn about negative numbers, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing, and they are absolutely brilliant for helping you to understand how equations work in algebra. Be ready to be amazed!
