# 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.*
