Coordinates - reasoning about position and shapes Coordinates - reasoning about position and shapes

Find the missing coordinates on a given shape, reflected in a mirror line, or the midpoints of straight lines. Choose to find coordinates in the first quadrant, or all four quadrants. Provides lots of opportunity to reason about shape and position.

Sorting 2D shapes on a Carroll diagram Sorting 2D shapes on a Carroll diagram

Sort a variety of 2d shapes on a Carroll diagram. Sort by one or two conditions. Sort triangles - scalene, equilateral and isosceles. Sort quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, heptagons and octagons, as well as parallelograms, rhombus, kites and trapeziums. Also sort according to a shapes properties such as acute, obtuse, reflex or right angles and symmetry or whether it is a regular shape.

**2nd May 2013 - I have updated this game as somebody has rightly pointed out to me that equilateral triangles are also isosceles. My apologies for the error.**

Sorting 2D shapes on a Venn diagram Sorting 2D shapes on a Venn diagram

Sort a variety of 2D shapes on a Venn diagram. Sort by one or two conditions. Sort triangles - scalene, equilateral and isosceles. Sort quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, heptagons and octagons, as well as parallelograms, rhombus, kites and trapeziums. Also sort according to a shapes properties such as acute, obtuse, reflex or right angles and symmetry or whether it is a regular shape.

ITP Coordinates ITP Coordinates

New January 2013: I have created a new game which involves finding missing coordinates on a given shape, reflected in a mirror line, or the midpoints of straight lines. Choose to find coordinates in the first quadrant, or all four quadrants.

View full screen in your browser.  This ITP allows you to use a marker to identify the coordinates of points on different grids. You can mark points and draw lines and shapes. You have a choice of 1, 2 or 4 quadrants to work in to introduce both positive and negative coordinates.

You can explore the use of the different quadrants by hiding and revealing the grid to support children’s understanding of the coordinate system.
The ITP can also be used to explore the properties of 2-D shapes and to predict translations, rotations and reflections of various shapes in the different quadrants. Interactive whiteboard tools can be used to draw mirror lines or points of rotation.

ITP Fixpoints ITP Fixpoints

View full screen in your browser.  This ITP allows you to create a number of connected vertices on a grid. The grid size can be changed, and the grids hidden and revealed. As each vertex is created it is labelled and joined to the previous one. To close a shape select a vertex at any point and drag it onto the required point to create a closed shape. Once a shape has been created, its vertices can be dragged to new positions to create new shapes. Lengths of sides can be measured using a ruler.
The angles created at vertices can be measured using the protractor and their values can be displayed or hidden. For reflex interior angles the value of the exterior angle is shown. You can use the ITP to demonstrate and explore properties of shapes, such as the internal angles of different pentagons and the properties of opposite sides of various parallelograms in different orientations.

ITP Ruler ITP Ruler

View full screen in your browser.  This ITP displays an on-screen ruler you can use to measure lines and the sides of shapes. There is a choice of rulers and five screens to use to demonstrate measuring length. You can draw your own lines and shapes or select those that are available on the ITP. The ITP can be used to demonstrate how to use measure using different rulers. The ITP can be used to compare lengths and the perimeters of shapes and to support children’s understanding of scale. You can develop their ability to estimate length against a given scale and use the ruler to check the accuracy and demonstrate what to the nearest half and whole unit means.
