Maths KS2: Geometry Rules OK

A demonstration of the importance of using correct mathematical language.

Descriptions of acute, right and obtuse angles as well as parallel and perpendicular lines.

We compare and contrast the geometric properties of different triangles and quadrilaterals.

A sketch explores naming shapes through their properties, while another looks at different types of angles and how they relate to shapes.

One final sketch explores the properties of a rhombus.

This clip is from the series Kick Sum Maths.

Teacher Notes

Pupils could work in pairs. One has a 2D shape and describes it to their partner using mathematical language. The other student attempts to draw the shape. Compare the shape drawn to the shape described.

Curriculum Notes

These clips could be used for teaching Maths at KS2 or at a beginner level in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and 1st and 2nd Level in Scotland.
