Draw different views of prisms and solids formed from combinations of prisms (ACMMG161)
| 12 other related resources
This is an interactive resource about investigating the surface areas and volumes of rectangular and triangular prisms. The resource can be used in one of two modes. In the Explore mode, the student can vary the height, width and depth of the prism, and the surface area and volume are calculated automatically. In the Compute ...
This is a website designed for both teachers and students that refers to the drawing of solids from the Australian Curriculum for year 7 students. It contains material on cross-sections of prisms and includes information regarding views, elevations and isometric drawings. There are pages for both teachers and students. ...
This is a 16-page guide for teachers. It provides an introduction to the initial ideas of measurement, and introduces the measurement of length, area, volume and time.
Unfurl the secret of symmetry used in kites to make them fly! A kite in geometry looks a lot like a kite in the sky. We see that a kite is a special quadrilateral in which one of its two diagonals (long and short) is also its axis of symmetry, and if you fold the kite along that diagonal, the two halves will match up exactly ...
This lesson engages students in investigating the relationship between the number of faces, edges and vertices of pyramids and prisms. Students construct their own 3D shapes, systematically record the properties of the shape and develop an algebraic formula to generalise the relationships discovered. The lesson is outlined ...
This is the first in a series of Syllabus bites related to transformations on the Cartesian plane aimed at Stage 4 Mathematics. Students find the coordinates of image points after translation. In doing so, they develop fluency in using coordinates and familiarity with the Cartesian plane, providing a basis for the investigations ...
This is a website designed for both teachers and students that introduces some transformations of the plane using coordinates in the Cartesian plane. In particular, transformations, translations, reflections in an axis and rotations of multiples of 90 degrees are discussed. Coordinates are used to describe these transformations. ...
This is the third in a series of Syllabus bites related to transformations on the Cartesian plane. Students further their understanding of translation and reflection and explore relationships between these two transformations.
The fourth in a series of Syllabus bites related to transformations on the Cartesian plane. This Bite covers rotation of points.
An animated tutorial, describing the process of drawing the resulting image after rotation of a triangle, followed by an interactive quiz.
This is the second in a series of Syllabus bites related to transformations on the Cartesian plane. This Bite covers reflection of points.
An animated tutorial demonstrating planes of symmetry of solids. An interactive quiz is included.
This is a 30-page guide for teachers that explains the central role of construction and presents examples of constructions.
These seven learning activities, which focus on 'representations' using a variety of tools (software) and devices (hardware), illustrate the ways in which content, pedagogy and technology can be successfully and effectively integrated in order to promote learning. In the activities, teachers use different representations ...
