Geometry is all around us!

7 05 2009

Over the next couple of weeks we will be learning about Geometry. This is our strand topic for Mathematics.

Using ideas from the beatiful geometrical designs above, create your own tessellation. Try using a basic shape like a hexagon or diamond.

Translate, flip and rotate the image to create patterns. Colour different parts for impact.

Language: Find the meanings for these words:

  1. geometric
  2. tessellation
  3. pattern
  4. rotation
  5. translation
  6. enlargement
  7. reflection

Complete this activity first. Name these 2D and 3D shapes:

1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

6. 7. 8. 9.

Be in first to win half an hour of computer time!

More problem solving to come…
