Areas of 2D Shapes: BODMAS, and Algebra Problem Solving

7 page pdf booklet. Reminders of the rules (along with shape diagrams with dimensions) for obtaining the areas of squares, rectangles, triangles, rhombuses, parallelograms, and trapeziums are provided. There are 10 questions asking students to find missing areas, heights and widths using number values required for substitution into formulae provided for such 2D shapes. Three example algebraic problems are then reviewed and full workings (with reminders about BODMAS) provided: 1) Substitution of an x value into length and width expressions to find a missing area of a rectangle; 2) Finding the value of x given an area value for a rectangle, and length and width in terms of x; 3) Finding the value of x and a width given expressions in x for opposite lengths in a rectangle as well as its value of area. These examples are followed by another 10 questions for more able students requiring substitution of algebraic terms into such area formulae as per the 3 examples provided.

Silly Shape Snowmen

Silly Shape Snowmen

Have your class giggling away at the silly snowmen they make, whilst learning all about 2D shapes! Pack includes: - 2D snowmen style shapes to cut out (square, circle, triangle, rectangle, diamond, hexagon and pentagon). - 14 idea cards which prompt children to use certain shapes, or be creative with whatever shapes they wish. - Two blank worksheets to stick their silly shape snowmen on. - A shape record sheet for children to tick off the shapes they have used (also can be used for the teacher to assess the shapes the children know). Some people prefer this to be a cutting and sticking activity, some choose to laminate the shapes and use them as interventions. I have done both and both work fine! :) Happy Christmas Everyone, The Teacher Traveller :)
