Summary

This unit deals with the use of diagrams to model situations and to find solutions.  At the start of the unit students learn how to draw and measure bearings, using reasoning to solve contextualised problems including those with scale drawings. Constructions with straight line and compass are considered next and are then used to set up and solve loci problems including in 3D, with an emphasis on developing reasoning skills.  The unit moves on to consider 3D shapes and their properties including face, edge and vertex.  Common 3D solids are named, and properties of prisms and pyramids are developed.  Understanding of planes of symmetry of 3D shapes is considered.  The final lesson of this unit looks at 2D representations of 3D objects, including isometric drawing, nets, plans and elevations. Students are encouraged to be able to move freely between different representations.
