Help your students prepare for their Maths GCSE with this free reflection worksheet of 25 questions and answers
Reflection is one of the four transformations. It involves a mirror line and results in the shape flipping over. Each point of the original shape is the same distance from the mirror line as each point on the reflected shape on the other side of the line. Mirror lines that are commonly used in maths problems include the x axis, the y axis and the line y=x.
Reflection is one type of transformation. Other transformations include rotation, translation and enlargement. When describing a transformation from shape A to shape B, we can spot a reflection by looking for a shape that has been flipped.
Reflection links to lines of symmetry. If a shape has a line of symmetry then the shape on one side of the line is an exact reflection of the shape on the other.
Looking forward, students can then progress to additional geometry worksheets, for example a 3D shapes worksheet or an area of compound shapes worksheet.
For more teaching and learning support on Geometry our GCSE maths lessons provide step by step support for all GCSE maths concepts.
There will be students in your class who require individual attention to help them succeed in their maths GCSEs. In a class of 30, it’s not always easy to provide.
