What can you deduce about the co-ordinates of points that are reflected about the line
$y=x$ ?
The
$x$ and
$y$ co-ordinates of points that are reflected on the line
$y=x$ are swapped around, or interchanged. This means that the
$x$ co-ordinate of the original point becomes the
$y$ co-ordinate of the reflected point and the
$y$ co-ordinate of the original point becomes the
$x$ co-ordinate of the reflected point.
The
$x$ and
$y$ co-ordinates of points that are reflected on the line
$y=x$ are interchanged.
Find the co-ordinates of the reflection of the point R, if R is reflected on the line
$y=x$ . The co-ordinates of R are (-5;5).
We are given the point R with co-ordinates (-5;5) and need to find the co-ordinates of the point if it is reflected on the line
$y=x$ .
The
$x$ co-ordinate of the reflected point is the
$y$ co-ordinate of the original point. Therefore,
$x$ =5.
The
$y$ co-ordinate of the reflected point is the
$x$ co-ordinate of the original point. Therefore,
$y$ =-5.
The co-ordinates of the reflected point are (5;-5).
A quick way to write a translation is to use a 'rule of translation'. For example
$(x;y)\to (x+a;y+b)$ means translate point (x;y) by moving a units horizontally and b units vertically.
So if we translate (1;2) by the rule
$(x;y)\to (x+3;y-1)$ it becomes (4;1). We have moved 3 units right and 1 unit down.
Translating a Region
To translate a region, we translate each point in the region.
Example
Region A has been translated to region B by the rule:
$(x;y)\to (x+4;y+2)$
Discussion : rules of transformations
Work with a friend and decide which item from column 1 matches each description in column 2.
Column 1
Column 2
1.

A. a reflection on x-y line
2.
$(x;y)\to (x-3;y)$
B. a reflection on the x axis
3.
$(x;y)\to (x;-y)$
C. a shift of 3 units left
4.
$(x;y)\to (-x;y)$
D. a shift of 3 units down
5.
$(x;y)\to (y;x)$
E. a reflection on the y-axis
Transformations
Describe the translations in each of the following using the rule (x;y)
$\to $ (...;...)
From A to B
From C to J
From F to H
From I to J
From K to L
From J to E
From G to H
A is the point (4;1). Plot each of the following points under the given transformations. Give the co-ordinates of the points you have plotted.
B is the reflection of A in the x-axis.
C is the reflection of A in the y-axis.
D is the reflection of B in the line x=0.
E is the reflection of C is the line y=0.
F is the reflection of A in the line y= x
In the diagram, B, C and D are images of polygon A. In each case, the transformation that has been applied to obtain the image involves a reflection and a translation of A. Write down the letter of each image and describe the transformation applied to A in order to obtain the image.
Investigation : calculation of volume, surface area and scale factors of objects
Look around the house or school and find a can or a tin of any kind (e.g. beans, soup, cooldrink, paint etc.)
Measure the height of the tin and the diameter of its top or bottom.
Write down the values you measured on the diagram below:
Using your measurements, calculate the following (in cm
${}^{2}$ , rounded off to 2 decimal places):
the area of the side of the tin (i.e. the rectangle)
the area of the top and bottom of the tin (i.e. the circles)
the total surface area of the tin
If the tin metal costs 0,17 cents/cm
${}^{2}$ , how much does it cost to make the tin?
Find the volume of your tin (in cm
${}^{3}$ , rounded off to 2 decimal places).
What is the volume of the tin given on its label?
Compare the volume you calculated with the value given on the label. How much air is contained in the tin when it contains the product (i.e. cooldrink, soup etc.)
Why do you think space is left for air in the tin?
If you wanted to double the volume of the tin, but keep the radius the same, by how much would you need to increase the height?
If the height of the tin is kept the same, but now the radius is doubled, by what scale factor will the:
area of the side surface of the tin increase?
area of the bottom/top of the tin increase?
Summary
The properties of kites, rhombuses, parallelograms, squares, rectangles and trapeziums was covered. These figures are all known as quadrilaterals
You should know the formulae for surface area of rectangular and triangular prisms as well as cylinders
The volume of a right prism is calculated by multiplying the area of the base by the height. So, for a square prism of side length
$a$ and height
$h$ the volume is
$a\times a\times h={a}^{2}h$ .
Two polygons are similar if:
their corresponding angles are equal
the ratios of corresponding sides are equal
. All squares are similar

Questions & Answers
Is there any normative that regulates the use of silver nanoparticles?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
Tarell
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Harper
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
