THIS RESOURCE IS LEFT HERE FOR ARCHIVAL PURPOSES. Please use the newer GCSE/KS3 Area of Triangles/Quadrilaterals and Area/Circumference of Circles resources.
(a) Find the perimeter and area of rectilinear shapes. (b) Find the area of a triangle, trapezium, parallelogram. (c) Find the area and circumference/perimeter of circles and fractions of circles (e.g. 1/2, 1/4). (d) Appreciate strategies to find areas of composite shapes, by (i) adding areas (ii) subtracting areas, including appreciation of the 'frame' method and (iii) cutting/reforming areas. (e) Appreciate that triangles have the same area if their base and height are the same, and compare sizes of triangles by considering the proportion of base/height. (f) Find what fraction of a shape is shaded by splitting into congruent shapes.
Covers geometric problems (involving lengths, angles and area) found in Intermediate Maths Challenges and Olympiads.
Key Skills are finegrained question types where students can practise randomly generated questions with accompanying short worked-example videos.
