The computer has made a rectangle and will tell you the number of spots it uses in total. Can you find out where the rectangle is?
Start with a triangle. Can you cut it up to make a rectangle?
Can you cut a regular hexagon into two pieces to make a parallelogram? Try cutting it into three pieces to make a rhombus!
Draw three straight lines to separate these shapes into four groups - each group must contain one of each shape.
Ahmed has some wooden planks to use for three sides of a rabbit run against the shed. What quadrilaterals would he be able to make with the planks of different lengths?
A task which depends on members of the group noticing the needs of others and responding.
These rectangles have been torn. How many squares did each one have inside it before it was ripped?
What shapes can you make by folding an A4 piece of paper?
Can you draw a square in which the perimeter is numerically equal to the area?
What does the overlap of these two shapes look like? Try picturing it in your head and then use some cut-out shapes to test your prediction.
How many DIFFERENT quadrilaterals can be made by joining the dots on the 8-point circle?
Billy's class had a robot called Fred who could draw with chalk held underneath him. What shapes did the pupils make Fred draw?
Find the missing coordinates which will form these eight quadrilaterals. These coordinates themselves will then form a shape with rotational and line symmetry.
This practical problem challenges you to make quadrilaterals with a loop of string. You'll need some friends to help!
Can you visualise what shape this piece of paper will make when it is folded?
How would you move the bands on the pegboard to alter these shapes?
I cut this square into two different shapes. What can you say about the relationship between them?
Investigate the different shaped bracelets you could make from 18 different spherical beads. How do they compare if you use 24 beads?

Cut a square of paper into three pieces as shown. Now,can you use the 3 pieces to make a large triangle, a parallelogram and the square again?
How many rectangles can you find in this shape? Which ones are differently sized and which are 'similar'?
The large rectangle is divided into a series of smaller quadrilaterals and triangles. Can you untangle what fractional part is represented by each of the shapes?
