Find the missing angles in each of the polygons. Students will need to know how to work out the total angle sum in each polygon before they attempt this worksheet.
Angles are all multiples of 5 so this could be done without a calculator.
Finishes with some work on regular polygons.
Names of 2D shapes worksheet. I find these worksheets very useful to give the pupils as homework’s; they can be trimmed and then stuck into exercise books. The pupils like them and they save on marking time. You will need to change the school logo to your own.
This activity gets students to construct regular polgons and stars using protactor and ruler. It quickly moves onto a powerful online microworld to make the constructions. Students can then discover the rules for a) the sum of exterior angles of a regular polygon and b) the exterior angle of any regular polygon or star.
This KS2 maths worksheet includes illustrations of 6 different 3D shapes (sphere, hemi-sphere, cylinder, cone, cuboid, cube). Children are asked to look at the 3D shapes and answer the mixed questions.
I created this activity for my bottom set Year 9s - who loved it! I made 12 horses labelled 1-12 and blue-tacked them to the board. Each pupil picks a horse. Using 2 dice each horse moves across one space when its number is rolled. It quickly showed the pupils which numbers were more likely to come up when 2 dice are rolled. When playing again I removed some of the 'winning horses'
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! :-)
