This unit is made up of three mini interactive activities focusing on the properties of 3D shapes. The first activity is based on Euler’s theory. The pupils need to find a rule that links the faces, edges and vertices together. The interactive activity allows them to manipulate the shapes on screen to count the faces, edges and vertices. The second activity has them using their knowledge of the properties of 3D shapes to form a polyhedral chain. The third activity allows the pupils to investigate which edges will meet when a net folds to form a 3D shape.
There is also a starter and plenary.
An interactive 2D shape and space investigation for use on the IWB. The pentomino activities help consolidate work on symmetry, tessellation and congruence of shapes. The unit can be used as part of a transition project at KS2/3. Teachers notes and worksheets included.
The children have a chart with pictures of 3D shapes on and they have to write how many faces, vertices (remember this as the points and there is a point in the letter v) and edges the shapes have. They also have to write or draw pictures of any other objects they can think of which are the same shape.
<p>A short investigation to find the number of ways the net of a tetrahedron can be coloured using four different colours only once. The unit is split into three sections: How many ways can the net of a tetrahedron be coloured using four different colours only once? How many ways can the net of a tetrahedron be coloured if rotations aren’t allowed? How many ways can a 3D tetrahedron be coloured using four different colours only once?</p>
A powerful and versatile application designed to assist with the teaching of reflections and lines of reflections. Ideally the interactive tools and activities can be used on the IWB in the classroom to investigate reflections of shapes on a chart. Clear and useful instructions and worksheets included.
Suitable for KS2, KS3 and KS4
There are about 17 (practical and fun) lesson activities, tasks or worksheets to cover the following 2014 objectives: <br />
Recognise angles as a property of shape or a description of a turn.<br />
Identify right angles, recognise that two right angles make a half-turn, three make three quarters of a turn and four a complete turn; identify whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle. <br />
This is one of the children's favourite activities to help understand angles. Ideas for children of all abilities to have fun learning about angles.<br />

A self-contained game to be played in pairs.<br />
Use to revise reading coordinates on a grid. Best played once coordinates have already been introduced, as a consolidating activity.<br />
Differentiated versions of the game within this pack, including use of the first quadrant only, as well as all four quadrants. You will also find instructions on how to play the game within your pack. Suitable for Years 4 and 5 (on one quadrant) and Year 6 and KS3 (on all four quadrants).<br />
You will find a PDF version and editable Word version available for download; both are exactly the same, so download whichever is more convenient for you.
I have created this for a year 5 top set maths group. It is differentiated 3 ways, yellow being the less able, green able and pink more able.<br />
This links in very heavily with shape as I am teaching this following 3 weeks on shape, space and measure, so it will continue to embed their knowledge of quadrilaterals, types of triangles, angles and parallel and perpendicular lines.<br />
Hope this is useful! Have included photos of what it should look like once points have been plotted, hopefully I haven't made any silly mistakes! :-)
