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 introductory geometry.

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.
