### Kaleidoscope: Playing with Colour

This resource includes some teaching ideas based on a project facilitated by artist Ruby Chew and students from two primary schools. Chew was inspired by the patterns and colour inside of a kaleidoscope. The resource includes an interactive showing the original project and it also explores the connections between art and geometry.

### Geometry: Foundation to Year 9

This comprehensive resource describes the progression of geometric reasoning. The resource demonstrates examples of relevant teaching strategies, investigations, activity plans and connected concepts in geometry including teaching and cultural implications.

### Dance Geometry

Body, space and time are the three components that you need to consider when generating a new dance. This resource is designed to provide inspiration to teachers to use maths and geometry to inspire movement creation with students.

### Exploring mysterious shapes

Join QuanQuan and Jenny as they explore some weird and wonderful shapes! While watching this clip, think about the sides, edges, surfaces and volumes of the shapes that are demonstrated. How are these shapes different from regular 2D and 3D forms?

### reSolve: Mechanical Linkages: Geometry Proofs

This series of six lessons explores geometry proofs using real world contexts focused on the dynamics of linkages and moving joints. Students use physical models and computer simulations, the lessons move from a view of geometry as a study to static diagrams to encompass movement. Each lesson is outlined in detail including ...

### Play School: Buttons and shapes

Have you ever looked at the buttons on your clothes? What shapes are they? You will find that most buttons are circles, but sometimes they can come in really different and interesting shapes, sizes and colours! What are some of the button shapes and colours mentioned in this video?

### MathXplosion, Ep 45: How to make an origami frog

Origami folds have associated geometric patterns or "paper trails" in which we are able to visualise different types of triangles, angles, polygons, lines and symmetry. Use these patterns to turn a two-dimensional flat sheet of paper into a three-dimensional hopping frog!

### TIMES Module 22: Measurement and Geometry: scale drawings and similarity - teacher guide

This is a 41-page guide for teachers. It contains an introduction to scale drawings and similarity, and in particular the tests for triangles to be considered similar. Applications of similarity are included throughout the module.
