# MSS2/L1.1

MSS2/L1.1 solve problems using the mathematical properties of regular 2-D shapes (e.g. tessellation or symmetry) (a) know that angles are measured in degrees (b) know that a right angle is 90 degrees or a quarter turn (c) know that four right angles fill a space (d) identify regular shapes (e) use a protractor to measure simple angles (f) estimate the size of angles below 180 degrees (g) identify shapes which will tessellate

## Functional maths garden project

Submitted by Tina Smith on Tue, 2012-10-23 21:35

#### Resource type: Investigation or project, Worksheet or assignment

Covers geometric drawings, area, perimeter, money, metric measures, tallies, line graphs and much more.
Fully mapped to the Functional Maths criteria and process skills. With answer sheet.

Editor’s note
Wonderful open ended project. Ideal for E3-L2 mixed ability groups.

## Medium term plan for E3-L1 perimeter, area and volume

Submitted by Susan Kindred on Sun, 2011-03-13 16:57

#### Level: E3, L1

8 week fully mapped medium term plan / scheme of work for teaching perimeter, area and volume to learners preparing for Edexcel ALAN (adult literacy and numeracy) tests.

Lots of detail – including hyperlinks to online practice tests and DfES Skills for Life worksheets. Fully mapped and differentiated. With loads of lovely hands-on kinaesthetic ideas for covering these topics.

## Tessellation and other shape and space investigations

Submitted by Gaye Noel on Wed, 2009-09-09 17:25

#### Level: L1, L2

A great set of activities and questions. The first is based on a children’s design project and is aimed at L1 (with L2 extension activities). Plus two other practical L2 investigations ideal for horticulture (planting bulbs in flower beds) and construction (building a pathway with slabs). Estimating and working out exact costs are also covered.

## Shapes around us

Submitted by Gaye Noel on Mon, 2009-08-24 17:25

#### Level: L1, L2

A fabulous interactive revision presentation for L1-2 2D shapes. Covers names, properties (inc. regular polygons), vocabulary, tessellation, measuring angles, symmetry and much more.

## Jenga

Submitted by John Thompson A on Fri, 2009-06-19 17:25

#### Level: E2, E3, L1

A hands-on activity that covers measuring, multiplying and 3D shapes (and a quick game of Jenga!).
Plus suggested L1 extension activities that cover perimeter, area, volume, metric measures and tessellation.
