Jump into Geometry

These tasks all have one thing in common - they focus on geometry.  But what exactly do we mean by 'geometry'?  Well, it might be knowing about different kinds of shapes and being able to describe them; it could be about sorting shapes.  Geometry also involves understanding turning (or angles) and pattern.

We hope you enjoy having a go at these tasks, which will make use of your problem-solving skills as well as your geometrical skills!

Repeating Patterns

Try continuing these patterns made from triangles. Can you create your own repeating pattern?

Turning Man

Use the interactivity to find out how many quarter turns the man must rotate through to look like each of the pictures.
