KS3. G6. Construction and 3D Shapes

KS3. G6. Construction and 3D Shapes

In this power point I have included all basic topics in KS3 (grade 6) about construction and 3D shapes that you can use to work with your students for approximately five lessons, each lesson includes at least one PDF worksheet to practice different activities and a ppt format file that you can edit. The learning objectives are: - Draw triangles and quadrilateral using a ruler and protractor - Use and construct a scale drawing. - Know various 3D shapes and their names. - Count vertices, faces and ages of a 3D Shape. - Use isometric paper to draw 3D shapes. - Find the surface area using nets. While you´re exploring the lessons you will find signs of practices and examples you can link to those specific lessons.

Junior Geometry - Topics 1-10

Junior Geometry - Topics 1-10

Bringing together the 1st 10 of 20 Topics in the GetMathsFit Junior Geometry series. This is over 350 pages of worked exemplar, explanation, definition of meaning & concept, exercises and model solutions. The teaching is logical, sequential and thorough without the need to refer elsewhere. From an introduction to points, lines and angles students explore and learn further characteristics, physical skills and reasoning with plane figures, symmetry, parallel lines, Pythagoras, similarity, congruence and finally proofs and problem solving with angles and parallel lines. Use for in-class introductions, group work, plenaries and differentiation as well as a home self study, revision and reference resource.

Constructions (Topic 5): Instructions, exercises and solutions for basic geometric constructions.

Constructions (Topic 5): Instructions, exercises and solutions for basic geometric constructions.

Topic 5 of 20 in the GetMathsFit Junior Geometry series shows students how to construct key geometric diagrams of angles, lines and shapes. Using ruler, compass and set-square the techniques of bisecting angles, drawing perpendicular line bisectors, constructing equal angles and drawing the core angles of 15°, 30°, 45°, 90° & 120 are all illustrated in a sequential manner. Over 60 pages of demonstration, instruction, exercise an model answers provide a wealth of resources for the often neglected skills of construction in geometry. Useful for maths classes but also; art, design technology & science.

Similarity in Geometry (Topic 8): Series of lessons, exercises and solutions.

Similarity in Geometry (Topic 8): Series of lessons, exercises and solutions.

Topic 8 of 20 in the Junior Geometry series begins by showing similar shapes and exploring what similarity means in maths so providing students with a definition and framework with which to work. Scale factors of enlargement are then explored by way of exemplar as well as teaching different techniques of drawing enlargements: either by using grid squares or using rays (straight lines) and the importance of the centre of enlargement. Further work demonstrating how to calculate enlargement using scale factors as well as calculating & using ratios leads students to being able to show for themselves that shapes are similar either by being equiangular or tat their sides are in proportion. The 40 pages of illustrations, exemplars, exercises and solutions are structured sequentially making it ideal for the following: differentiation by outcome with self study in-class, small groups exploring different aspects and 'reporting back' as well as for homework setting.

Instructions for Constructions

Instructions for Constructions

Rather than explaining how to construct perpendicular bisectors and angle bisectors, pupils can be given these instructions and discover the methods for themselves. Includes perpendicular bisector, perpendicular to a point on the line, perpendicular to an external point and angle bisector.

Christmas coordinates in the first quadrant

Christmas coordinates in the first quadrant

This is aimed at pupils in year 4 to use their coordinate plotting skills to help draw Christmas decorations. The smartboard presentation goes through how to write and how to plot coordinates by using fun activities such as locating the Christmas decorations, plotting baubles on the Christmas tree and drawing Rudolph's nose. The worksheets have 2 grids on each with the relevant coordinates, so that they can be connected together and reveal a Christmas decoration that Santa is looking for.
