Over the 8 weeks we will be unpacking the skills needed to really understand and enjoy geometry. We’ll examine how geometry can be useful for practical problem solving and enhance understanding of rules and symbols to represent unknown dimensions.
There will be many opportunities to ask questions, to think creatively about 2D shapes, 3D shapes, circles and arcs, quadrants and how these help build houses, carpet floor areas and pack containers!
Understand how letters (<ABC) represent unknowns
Work with geometry rules
Express missing amounts, angles and areas
Work with two and three dimensions
Develop confidence to jump into geometry!
