Geometry and Measures

Measures:

Sufficient evidence shows the ability to:

  • Solve problems involving the calculation and conversion of units of measure, using decimal notation up to three decimal places where appropriate.
  • Use, read, write and convert between standard units, converting measurements of length, mass, volume and time from a smaller unit of measure to a larger unit, and vice versa, using decimal notation to up to three decimal places.
  • Convert between miles and kilometres.
  • Recognise that shapes with the same areas can have different perimeters and vice versa.
  • Recognise when it is possible to use formulae for area and volume of shapes.
  • Calculate the area of parallelograms and triangles.
  • Calculate, estimate and compare volume of cubes and cuboids using standard units, including cubic centimetres (cm3) and cubic metres (m3), and extending to other units for example, mm3 and km3.

Geometry – Properties of Shapes:

Sufficient evidence shows the ability to:

  • Draw 2-D shapes using given dimensions and angles.
  • Recognise, describe and build simple 3-D shapes, including making nets.
  • Compare and classify geometric shapes based on their properties and sizes and find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons.
  • Illustrate and name parts of circles, including radius, diameter and circumference and know that the diameter is twice the radius recognise angles where they meet at a point, are on a straight line, or are vertically opposite, and find missing angles.

Geometry – Position and Movement:

Sufficient evidence shows the ability to:

  • Describe positions on the full coordinate grid (all four quadrants).
  • Draw and translate simple shapes on the coordinate plane, and reflect them in the axes.

Statistics:

Sufficient evidence shows the ability to:

  • Interpret and construct pie charts and line graphs and use these to solve problems.
  • Calculate and interpret the mean as an average.
