##### Presentation Transcript

1. 2013 MTANTBringing Geometry Alive! MTANT 2013 • Engage, explore and extend mathematics using the Australian Curriculum content and the four proficiencies • Gabrielle (Gay) West gabrielle.west@nt.gov.au p 08 8944 9246 Bringing Maths Alive! – 10 March

2. The Australian Curriculum: Mathematics MTANT 2013 • The strands, sub-strands, content descriptions and elaborations describe ‘what’ is to be taught • The four proficiencies describe ‘how’ it should be taught Achievement Standards describe and the work samples show the core skills and understandings Bringing Maths Alive! – 10 March (see Australian Curriculum folder)

3. Geometry MTANT 2013

4. Let’s fly with 2D Shapes MTANT 2013 Bringing Maths Alive! – Geometry 10 March

5. Folding Shapes • A4 coloured paper can be folded to make many 2 D shapes with no measuring or cutting • Follow the diagrams • See if you can make the shapes • Try these folds with A3 and A5 paper and all the A series paper [Note A series paper was invented in 1922 in Germany.]

7. This is called a square fold.What is this shape?

8. One more fold. Let’s turn this around

9. Look familiar?

10. Can you name this shape? • What can you tell me about this special 2D shape (quadrilateral)? • Turn it around and look at the sides and angles . . . • What about lines of symmetry? • Tell me about the diagonals. Do they intersect? Do they bisect? Describe this. • Will it tessellate? • What shapes can you make with 1, 2, 3, or more of these kites? • What are the functions of this shape, in real life?

11. Angles wheels Let’s estimate, deduce and check angle size Straws can be used to measure angles MTANT 2013 Bringing Maths Alive! – Geometry 10 March

12. Angles Hunting for shapes using a circle and elastic Proving, visualising and ‘seeing’ the angle properties of a circle Angle estimation and bearings Angles 0–360 0 MTANT 2013 Bringing Maths Alive! – Geometry 10 March

13. Let’s describe and write about our shapes.

14. Make creative designsDescribe and write about our shapes.

15. Let’s try another shape

16. Square fold again.

17. Fold it up along the edge.

19. Can you name this shape? • What can you tell me about this shape? • Turn it around. Look at the sides and angles . . . • What about lines of symmetry? • Will it tessellate? • What shapes can you make with 1, 2, 3, or more of these shapes? • Compare it to the kite – how are they the same, how are they different? • Where do you see this shape in the environment?

20. Let’s try a new fold

21. A hot dog fold – right down the middle

22. Fold the left bottom corner up to the centre

23. Now the top left corner edge comes down.

24. Check this out!

25. What is special about this shape? • What can you tell me about this shape? • Look at the sides and angles . . . • What about lines of symmetry? • Will it tessellate? • Why is it called regular? • What shapes can you make with 1, 2, 3, or more of these shapes? • Where do you see this regular shape?

26. The 4 Proficiencies: Make the shapes, describe, compare, categorise and justify Fluency: Name this shape? How many sides? How many angles? Problem Solving: Make, manipulate, fold, photograph, draw, label, investigate to be able to describe and explain. Reasoning: Compare 2 shapes: How are they the same? How are they different? Group these shapes into 2 or 3 categories and justify why? Understanding: Tell me everything you can about this shape . Describe all the features of a square.

27. Third shape coming up!

28. Remember the name of this fold?

29. Fold it up to the line.

30. Tuck in the corner.

31. Turn it around.

32. What do you see? • What can you tell me about this special triangle? • Look at the sides and angles . . . • What about lines of symmetry? • Fold it in half and investigate the new shape. • Will it tessellate? • What shapes can you make with 1, 2, 3, or more of these shapes? • Compare this triangle to the previous triangle. How are they the same? How are they different?

33. Fourth shape

34. Here we go again!

35. You’re getting good at this

36. Fold the bottom up and unfold.

37. You’ve seen this shape before.

38. This is a very common shape. • What can you tell me about this shape? • Look at the sides and angles . . . • Why is it a regular shape? • What about lines of symmetry? • Draw in the diagonals. Why are they special? • Can you fold it in interesting ways? • What shapes can you make with 1, 2, 3, or more of these shapes? • Functions of this shape? • Where do you see this shapes in everyday life?

39. Landscape view

40. Fold in half, fold in half again.

41. Use the centre line and first fold line

42. Do the same to the top

43. Fold the right corner edge up

44. Fold the left top corner edge down

45. This is an interesting shape

46. What is special about this shape? • What does this shape remind you of? • What can you tell me about this shape? • Look at the sides and opposite angles . . . • Explain what ‘parallel’ means. • What about lines of symmetry? • These diagonals will be interesting, tell me about them. • Will it tessellate? • What shapes can you make with 1, 2, 3, or more of these shapes? • Have you seen this in the world around you?
