This collection is one of our Primary Curriculum collections - tasks that are grouped by topic.

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.

Age 7 to 11

Challenge Level

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

Age 7 to 14

Challenge Level

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

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.

Age 7 to 11

Challenge Level

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

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?

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?
