ANGLES
 
Pelmanism matching basic angle facts
Identify acute, obtuse and reflex angles. Use on screen protractor to measure angles. Use on screen protractor to draw angles.
Construct triangles involving sides and angles.
Three figure bearings. Identify bearings and draw bearings. Hyperlink to Mathsonline game.
Use square paper to identify 45, 90, 135, 180, 225, 270, 315 degree angles. Draw 4,5 6...sided shapes on square paper, identify the size of the angle and use this information to find the total interior angle of irregular polygons.
Draw inscribed polygons and calculate angles.
Regular polygon starter
Identify total of interior angles, interior and exterior angle
A variety of shapes for pupils to show tessellation.
AREA AND PERIMETER
 
Find the area and perimeter of rectangles. Fold and cut rectangles and squares to create new shapes. Find their areas.
Find the area of compound rectangular shapes and triangles.
Find the area of a triangle from the area of a rectangle. Diagrams to show that the triangle is always half the area of a rectangle. Drag the correct answers into the spaces on a table
Use square dotty grids to find the area of quadrilaterals by subtracting triangles from rectangles
Area Investigation - Rectangles and Triangles
Use a rectangle and 2 different triangles to create different shapes. Leads to being able to find the area of a parallelogram and a trapezium.
Move the shapes to make a parallelogram and then move them to show it can be made into a rectangle. Identify the need to use the perpendicular height.
Area of trapeziums and compound shapes
Move the trapezium to show that putting 2 together creates a parallelogram and find the formula from this. Examples for compound shapes. Plenary to recap rules for area of different shapes.
Examples for the circumference of a circle and estimating the circumference. Match up the question, working out and answer. Calculate perimeter of semi-circle and compound shapes involving circles.
Use rectangles, squares and circles to create shapes and find their perimeter.
Examples for the area of a circle and compound shapes involving circles
TRANSFORMATIONS
 
Reflection
Move letters of the alphabet into the correct category based on lines of symmetry. Draw lines of symmetry onto shapes. Follow me reflections, where the teacher or pupil draws a shape on one side of the mirror line and the other pupil must follow. Shade in square to complete the reflection pattern. Reflect shapes in diagonal mirror lines. Reflect shapes in 4 quadrants.
Rotate shapes to find the order of rotational symmetry. Rotate shapes around a centre of rotation. Shade squares to give a shape rotational symmetry
Translation
Vector shapes. Move to a new postion given the vector. Translate the L shape. Pupils can move the L shape given a certain vector. Find the vectors to move the L shape to a new position. Vector game using 2 dice and a coin.
Describe transformations in full involving translations, reflections, rotations and enlargements
Describe transformations in full involving translations, reflections, rotations and enlargements
MEASURES
 
Differentiate between metric and imperial units. Measuring and weighing and converting between units.
Metric/imperial poem to help remember facts. Reading different scales.
Converting between mm, cm, m and km. Matching pairs of measures. Measuring and calculating actual lengths.
Match am and pm times. Match start and finish times with time differences
PYTHAGORAS AND TRIGONOMETRY
 
Decide whether it is an add or subtract Pythagoras question.
Axes set up for drawing sin, cos and tan graphs.
LOCI
 
Shape facts starter . Move the blue dots around to identify the locus of a point given a certain set of rules.
