This group of tasks, which are part of our Jaunts into Geometry Feature, will help you support the geometry curriculum using a problem-solving approach.

Age 5 to 7

Challenge Level

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

Age 5 to 7

Challenge Level

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

Age 7 to 11

Challenge Level

This problem explores the shapes and symmetries in some national flags.

Age 7 to 11

Challenge Level

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

Age 7 to 11

Challenge Level

Each of the nets of nine solid shapes has been cut into two pieces. Can you see which pieces go together?

Age 7 to 11

Challenge Level

Sally and Ben were drawing shapes in chalk on the school playground. Can you work out what shapes each of them drew using the clues?

Age 7 to 11

Challenge Level

This task looks at the different turns involved in different Olympic sports as a way of exploring the mathematics of turns and angles.

Age 7 to 14

Challenge Level

Can you find a reliable strategy for choosing coordinates that will locate the treasure in the minimum number of guesses?

Age 7 to 14

Challenge Level

On the graph there are 28 marked points. These points all mark the vertices (corners) of eight hidden squares. Can you find the eight hidden squares?
