On day 40, we turn our attention to Angle facts. An angle is a measure of turn and is measured in degrees. You should be able to classify the different types of angles based on their size and use that information to be able to calculate missing angles in straight lines and around a point. Calculating missing angles is achieved by subtracting angles you already know.
We are taking a look at 3D - Shapes today and how they are classified. We will take a look at Prisms, Pyramids and Spheres. Being able to identify the 3D - Shape will help with more complex problems involving calculating the the volume of the shape as well as the surface area. We can also classify these shapes according to the number of faces, edges and vertices (corners) it has.
Polygons is today's focus on Day 38 in our countdown to exams. You will need to be able to give the names of many sided shapes and use this information to calculate the angles inside these more complex shapes. You may also have to state whether the shape is concave or convex as well as regular and irregular.
Today we are taking a look at the properties of Triangles. You will have to be able to name all of the triangles according to properties that they have. The key properties you will have to look out for are Side lengths, and angles.
It is important that you can correctly identify the types of triangle you are working with as it will help with finding missing angles in more complex problems (circle theorems, bearing problems)
Today we are moving to the Geometry section and taking a look at the properties of Quadrilaterals. You will have to be able to name all of the quadrilaterals according to properties that they have. The key properties you will have to look out for are Side lengths, Parallel sides, Angles, Diagonals.
