Several of you sent very clearly explained solutions to Shape Mapping, including Dante from Newton Prep, Jack and Jemma from Eastwood Primary, and Jamie from Great Sankey High School. Dante says:


1. the small circle is to C because the triangle is elongated sideways and so is C
2.the triangle is to B because the square has a quarter taken off it and so does B
3.the u-shape is to B because if you rotate the first shape 180 degrees clockwise and add the shape you on to the highest point on the right of the original shape, that will also happen with the u-shape and B

Fantastic! Jamie also sent in his own challenge for us:
