Plotting coordinates using up to four quadrants!

Plotting coordinates using up to four quadrants!

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. 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. 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! :-)

Geometry KS3/GCSE Foundation Maths Resources

This is a set of excellent resources which cover geometry in KS3 maths/GCSE foundation. The 2-D shapes formulae sheet contains all of the area formulae for 2-D shapes as well as 3 diagrams illustrating the parts of a circle. The 2-D shapes revision sheet includes details of all the properties of 2-D shapes and contains a section on polygons. Also included in the resource is a revision aid on how to work out the circumference and area of a circle with worked examples and questions for students to attempt. There is also some worded questions on circumference and area which go beyond simply just asking them to calculate the area and circumference of a circle. Instead it gets them to draw on their literacy skills to decode the question and problem-solving abilities to attempt a style of question they may not have encountered before or be familiar with.
