This article looks at the importance in mathematics of representing places and spaces mathematics. Many famous mathematicians have spent time working on problems that involve moving and mapping. . . .
This article describes a practical approach to enhance the teaching and learning of coordinates.
Find the missing coordinates which will form these eight quadrilaterals. These coordinates themselves will then form a shape with rotational and line symmetry.
What are the coordinates of the coloured dots that mark out the tangram? Try changing the position of the origin. What happens to the coordinates now?
This task requires learners to explain and help others, asking and answering questions.
Can you find the squares hidden on these coordinate grids?
A game for 2 people that can be played on line or with pens and paper. Combine your knowledege of coordinates with your skills of strategic thinking.
Geometry problems at primary level that require careful consideration.
Geometry problems at primary level that may require determination.
Geometry problems for primary learners to work on with others.
Geometry problems for inquiring primary learners.
The graph below is an oblique coordinate system based on 60 degree angles. It was drawn on isometric paper. What kinds of triangles do these points form?
A game for 2 players. Practises subtraction or other maths operations knowledge.
