## Ancient Architecture

• Figure It Out activities
• Geometry and Measurement
• Level Five

This is a level 5 geometry strand activity from the Figure It Out series.

• Figure It Out activities
• Geometry and Measurement
• Level Four

This is a level 4 geometry strand activity from the Figure It Out series.

## Inside Out

• Figure It Out activities
• Geometry and Measurement
• Level Three

This is a level 3 geometry activity from the Figure it Out series.

## Getting in Shape

• Figure It Out activities
• Geometry and Measurement
• Level Three

This is a level 3 geometry activity from the Figure it Out series.

• Units of Work
• Geometry and Measurement
• Level Four

In this unit we conduct a couple of investigations looking at the relationship between the angle between two diagonals of a quadrilateral, the sides of the quadrilateral, and the type of quadrilateral. The main emphasis is on rectangles.

## Tessellating Art

• Units of Work
• Geometry and Measurement
• Level Four

In this unit we apply our understanding of why tessellations work to form our own unique tessellating shapes. We use these shapes to create interesting pieces of art in the style of M.C. Escher.

## Fitness

• Units of Work
• Geometry and Measurement
• Level Four

This unit examines regular tessellations, that is, tessellations that can be made using only one type of regular polygon, and semi-regular tessellations, where more than one type of regular polygon is involved. Students are required to investigate what properties tessellating shapes must have in order to cover the plane with no gaps or overlaps.

## Keeping in Shape

• Units of Work
• Geometry and Measurement
• Level Three

This unit examines tessellations, that is, ways of covering the plane with copies of the same shape so that there are no gaps or overlaps. Students will investigate what properties tessellating shapes must have in order to cover the plane with no gaps and with no overlapping. The tessellations investigated involve both non-regular and regular polygons.
