Year 9: Properties, representations, and measurement of 3D shapes

In TIMSS students are expected to recognise and apply the properties of 3D shapes, such as the constant cross-section of prisms, to solve problems. Students also  need to represent 3D shapes using 2D drawings, or establish the correctness of a given representation. Measurements required include volume, and surface area.

These units of work will improve students' fluency with the properties and measurement of 3D shapes:

Students will also benefit from working independently or collaboratively on the following student e-ako on the Geometry pathway (information about e-ako maths):
