# Shape, Position and Movement

Shape Patterns is a sequencing game where children from 3 to 8 years of age need to complete the pattern of different coloured 2D shapes. Three levels of difficulty.

Symmetry Matching Not FlashSymmetry matching game involving mirroring pictures, shapes and patterns along lines of symmetry. Suitable for 4 - 8 year olds.

Symmetry Sorting Not FlashSort the pictures, shapes and letters into symmetrical and not symmetrical sets.

Demonstrate Coordinates Not FlashA teaching tool which shows how to use coordinates in one, two, or three quadrants. Drag the markers around and their respective coordinates will be updates.

Area Builder Not FlashA fabulous teaching aid and learning game site on areas, perimeter and fractions of shapes. You can toggle between one or two display areas which is useful if you want to compare different shapes.

Perimeter Explorer Not FlashCreate your own shapes with blocks and explore the relationship between perimeter and area. A useful teaching tool for demonstrating irregular shapes.

Area and Perimeter Not FlashA teaching tool for demonstrating area and perimeter on an interactive whiteboard. Drag out rectangles to show different examples.

Area and Perimeter of Rectangles Not FlashA teaching tool to help the understanding of area and perimeter of rectangles. Both area and perimeter can be shown or hidden.

Sorting Shapes on a Venn Diagram Not FlashSort a variety of 2D shapes on a Venn diagram. Sort by one or two conditions.

Symmetry Shapes Not FlashA teaching resource for demonstrating symmetry on IWBs and iPads.

ITP Coordinates Not FlashThis resource from Mathsframe allows you to use a marker to identify the coordinates of points on different grids. You can mark points and draw lines and shapes in either 1, 2 or 4 quadrants.

ITP Fixpoints - Using a Protractor Not FlashCreate angles using a grid and then measure them using the protractor. Their values can be displayed or hidden. For reflex interior angles the value of the exterior angle is shown.

Symmetry FlashA good tutorial with audio to help pupils learn the names of different polygons and how to draw lines of symmetry on some of them.

Castle shapes FlashIdentify 2d and 3d shapes and their properties in the context of a castle. Use Venn diagrams to sort shapes according to their curved faces and vertices.

Axial Symmetry FlashA simple demonstration of what axial symmetry is. View simple shapes and see the difference between horizontal, vertical and diagonal axes.

Rotational Symmetry Game FlashAnimations which can help you to understand the way rotational symmetry works.

Symmetry FlashA tutorial explaining rotational symmetry and line symmetry.

Polygon Playground FlashA drag and drop activity where you can experiment with symmetry, tessellations or just design crazy patterns or pictures using shapes.

Polygons FlashA simple lesson on what a polygon is and how you can identify them. Test your knowledge.

Solid Figures FlashA tutorial explaining the properties of some 3D shapes.

Tessellation Creator Not FlashA teacher demonstration tool to show how shapes or combinations of shapes tesselate. Shapes can be dragged and rotated.

Coordinate Bingo FlashA useful teaching tool for a whole class coordinates activity using different grids and including negative numbers.

Dino Dig FlashA game where you are an archaeologist searching for dinosaur bones. You have to use the grid to put in the coordinates to see where to dig.

Plotter the Penguin FlashSolve a series of puzzles by using your knowledge of coordinates. Suitable as starter or plenary activity.

Geometric Solids FlashA teaching tool which is good for learning about solid shapes and their properties. Explore the number of faces, edges and vertices. There are lesson plans which demonstrate how the tool can be used.

2D Shapes Class Clips FlashA BBC presentation where the climbing frame makes itself into various shapes - a cube, triangular prism, square-based pyramid and a regular tetrahedron. The clip describes the properties of the shapes.

Area FlashAn interactive tutorial on how to find the area of a rectangle or square.

Interactive Teaching Program on Area Not FlashThis interactive teaching tool can be used in a variety of mathematical contexts such as multiplication arrays, finding different shapes with the same area, nets and more. It is useful because there are different backgrounds such as dots.

Area and Perimeter FlashAimed at 10 to 11 year olds, this interactive lesson on area and perimeter shows you how shapes with the same area can have different perimeters. There are lots of examples to try.

Area and Perimeter of Irregular Shapes FlashAn interactive lesson on how to find the area and perimeter of irregular shapes which is presented in an appealing way with cartoon characters. There are examples to try at each stage.

Nets of Polyhedra FlashView nets of various solid shapes: tetrahedron, cube, square-based pyramid, cuboid, hexagonal prism, octahedron, triangular prism, dodecahedron and icosahedron.

Angle Types FlashA simple lesson on acute, obtuse and reflex angles with an interactive test so you can check your understanding.

Angle Types Simulation FlashLearn how to recognise different types of angles: acute, obtuse and reflex in this interactive simulation. You can create the angles on the protractor.

What's my Angle FlashA great way to learn how to use a protractor. There's a tutorial on its use and random examples to practise.

Co-ordinate Grids FlashActivities using co-ordinates including a treasure hunt. A good teaching aid for teaching how co-ordinates work.
