### Mrs Trimmer's String

##### Stage: 1 Challenge Level:

Can you help the children in Mrs Trimmer's class make different shapes out of a loop of string?

### Overlapping Again

##### Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

What shape is the overlap when you slide one of these shapes half way across another? Can you picture it in your head? Use the interactivity to check your visualisation.

### Is a Square a Rectangle?

##### Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

How many rectangles can you find in this shape? Which ones are differently sized and which are 'similar'?

### Shapely Tiling

##### Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

Use the interactivity to make this Islamic star and cross design. Can you produce a tessellation of regular octagons with two different types of triangle?

### Bracelets

##### Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

Investigate the different shaped bracelets you could make from 18 different spherical beads. How do they compare if you use 24 beads?

### Shapely Lines

##### Stage: 1 Challenge Level:

This challenge invites you to create your own picture using just straight lines. Can you identify shapes with the same number of sides and decorate them in the same way?

### Rabbit Run

##### Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

Ahmed has some wooden planks to use for three sides of a rabbit run against the shed. What quadrilaterals would he be able to make with the planks of different lengths?

### Part the Polygons

##### Stage: 2 Short Challenge Level:

Draw three straight lines to separate these shapes into four groups - each group must contain one of each shape.

### Folding

##### Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

What shapes can you make by folding an A4 piece of paper?

##### Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

How many DIFFERENT quadrilaterals can be made by joining the dots on the 8-point circle?

### Overlaps

##### Stage: 1 Challenge Level:

What does the overlap of these two shapes look like? Try picturing it in your head and then use the interactivity to test your prediction.

### Numerically Equal

##### Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

Can you draw a square in which the perimeter is numerically equal to the area?

### Hexagon Transformations

##### Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

Can you cut a regular hexagon into two pieces to make a parallelogram? Try cutting it into three pieces to make a rhombus!

### What Am I?

##### Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

Can you draw the shape that is being described by these cards?

### Cutting it Out

##### Stage: 1 and 2 Challenge Level:

I cut this square into two different shapes. What can you say about the relationship between them?

### Rectangle Tangle

##### Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

The large rectangle is divided into a series of smaller quadrilaterals and triangles. Can you untangle what fractional part is represented by each of the ten numbered shapes?

##### Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

This practical problem challenges you to make quadrilaterals with a loop of string. You'll need some friends to help!

##### Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

Can you visualise what shape this piece of paper will make when it is folded?

### A Cartesian Puzzle

##### Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

Find the missing coordinates which will form these eight quadrilaterals. These coordinates themselves will then form a shape with rotational and line symmetry.

##### Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

A task which depends on members of the group noticing the needs of others and responding.

### Shape Draw

##### Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

Use the information on these cards to draw the shape that is being described.
