Jump Into Geometry

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 mean being able to describe and sort shapes, and draw or construct them.  Geometry also involves understanding turning (angles) and describing how to rotate, reflect or translate shapes.

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!
