Position and Direction KS2

Coordinate Tan

Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level:

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?

A Cartesian Puzzle

Age 7 to 11 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.

Transformations on a Pegboard

Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level:

How would you move the bands on the pegboard to alter these shapes?

Ten Hidden Squares

Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level:

These points all mark the vertices (corners) of ten hidden squares. Can you find the 10 hidden squares?

More Transformations on a Pegboard

Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level:

Use the interactivity to find all the different right-angled triangles you can make by just moving one corner of the starting triangle.

Coordinate Challenge

Age 7 to 11 Challenge Level:

Use the clues about the symmetrical properties of these letters to place them on the grid.

Eight Hidden Squares

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?

Treasure Hunt

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?
