This unit continues the work from Unit 11 on the properties of angles and shapes. The unit starts by considering quadrilaterals; their names and properties and the classification of each by property. Rotational and reflective symmetry of shapes are explored, and the interior angles of polygons are considered in this context. Geometrical reasoning problems are considered, and students are supported in the development of a solution and encouraged to use appropriate language. Circle area and circumference are met and applied. The unit ends by considering the properties of 3D shapes, the difference between prisms and pyramids and work on the shape of nets of 3D shapes.

What people say...
Open questions feature regularly so that students learn to see the possibilities in a question. This is essential for solving problems and tackling unfamiliar questions.
