This book is designed to complement the geometry component of the space
strand of the curriculum. It provides a basic introduction to new concepts as
well as activities that will consolidate the skills and ideas associated with
The book is designed to be used sequentially as certain skills need to be
mastered in order to complete some of the later activities. Many of the activity
pages explain the various mathematical concepts and provide examples, however,
it is assumed that these ideas will be discussed in class prior to students
completing the worksheets.
The activities in this book cover the major learning areas such as
identifying different types of angles, using a protractor to measure angles,
using known rules to calculate the size of angles, and constructing angles using
either a compass or a protractor.
Angles in a wide range of 2D objects are explored, specifically, the angles
of scalene, isosceles and equilateral triangles, parallel and intersecting
lines, and angles in a circle. In addition, there are several pages that apply
many of these concepts to angles in everyday situations.
The book also explores the mathematics of circles examining features such as
chords, arcs, angles, and various shapes in circles.
