Learners will extend their knowledge and understanding of angle facts from Year 7 and solve increasingly complex angle problems. Links are then make to the connected properties of polygons and quadrilaterals. Learners will also learn about further constructions with pairs of compasses.
Following this learners will consolidate their understanding of how to find the area of trapezia from Year 7 and extend this to include circles and common sectors. A key aspect of this half term is for learners to be able to choose and use correct formulae reinforcing shapes the names of shapes and their properties.
Transforming shapes by reflection and understanding line symmetry and rotational symmetry is developed at the end of this half term. Here learners can also revisit and enhance their knowledge of types of triangles and quadrilaterals. Please note: rotation and translation are not introduced at this point to enable students to attain a deeper understanding and avoid mixing up the different concepts.
