# Where are they?

Use the isometric grid paper to find the different polygons.

Use the isometric grid paper below to find the following polygons.

- A rectangle
- A rhombus
- A trapezium
- A parallelogram that is not a rectangle
- An equilateral triangle
- A right angled triangle
- A scalene triangle
- An isosceles triangle that is not an equilateral triangle
- A pentagon
- A hexagon
- A heptagon
- An octagon

If you need to find a description of these polygons try looking at:

If you're having trouble finding some of the shapes, you could print off this sheet.

The pupils from **Moorfield Juniors** in Stockport sent in many solutions to this problem. Well done to each of you. The first piece of work was received from **Steven** and **Matthew**, who sent along the following shapes that they were able to find and recognise on the isometric paper.

Many other shapes were found by Moorfield's pupils, some of them were irregular and some were even difficult to put a name to! They certainly demonstrated their powers of observation.

Can you find any other examples of the shapes that were named?
