# Shape maker: complex shapes: assessment

TLF ID L9932

Test your understanding of how the transformations of spinning and extruding can change some less basic 2D shapes (such as a pentagon, cross, crescent and trapezium) into specific atypical 3D shapes. Visualise the effect of a particular transformation on a selected 2D shape. Predict whether the result will match a given 3D shape. View and print a report of your results. This assessment object is the second in a series of two objects that increase in difficulty.

#### Educational details

Key learning objectives
• Students interpret the characteristics of given 3D shapes.
• Students visualise the result of different transformations for given 2D shapes.
• Students match the characteristics of given 3D shapes with transformed 2D shapes.
Educational value
• Assesses student understanding of how the transformations of spinning and extruding can change less basic 2D shapes into various atypical 3D shapes.
• Requires students to recall the effects of rotations and translations on a range of 2D shapes other than the most basic.
• Requires students to visualise and predict the 3D shapes that result from rotating (spinning) specific 2D shapes.
• Requires students to visualise and predict the 3D shapes that result from translating (extruding) specific 2D shapes.
• Includes a printable report of the student's performance.
• Provides a mechanism for the student and teacher to comment on the student's learning progress.
