Foundation Only; Transformations Congruence, Vectors, Construction and Loci
Higher Only; Trigonometry, Similar Shapes, Quadratic Sequences, Plans and Elevations

Foundation Only; Moving and scaling shapes via rotation, translation, and reflection; finding similarity with shapes regarding length of sides, using vectors to problem solve linear problems; constructing triangles, perpendicular bisectors, angles bisectors etc using ruler and compass, then using compass and protractor to measure angles and define areas in scale drawings.
