This unit focuses on the properties of angles and shapes. Beautifully illustrated to support learning and with a balance of clarity and challenge, this unit provides a valuable resource for the development of understanding within this area of mathematics. Angle properties in lines and shapes are explored, developed and used to solve problems. Names and properties of 2D shapes are met and classification is explored. The values of interior and exterior angles of polygons are considered and skills developed and applied to reasoning challenges. All four transformations of shapes are considered both singly and as combinations. The work on enlargements is then developed into considering similarity of shapes and their properties, initially considering integer scale factors. This work is then further developed to encompass fractional scale factors and finding and using centres of enlargement.
