Yikes. Probably the fusion of some of the nastier topics on the GCSE Maths course – trigonometry, and graphs. And you have to know how they transform, as well! But not to fear, this article is here to tell you all you need to know about trigonometric graphs – and how they transform, using the handy rules in this article here (best read that before this article). Ready? Then let’s get these graphs going on…

You might have thought transformations was as simple as translating, enlarging, rotating and reflecting. Well, maybe it is – in Year 7. For the Edexcel GCSE Maths course, you need to learn about transforming any graph – known as transforming **functions**. Confused? Don’t panic, we’re going to explain this all here – so let’s give it a go!

You’ll have almost certainly seen this stuff somewhere before – probably around Year 7, 8 or even earlier. But heading back to translations, enlargements, rotations and reflections is all important for getting those easy marks in the Edexcel Unit 3 exam – so we’re going to cover it. Ready? Then let’s go for it…
