Y10 Foundation: Topic 7: Drawing and Constructing 2-D shapes

Objectives:

    • Use a ruler and compass to draw accurate triangles, and other 2-D shapes, given information about their side lengths and angles
    • Use straight edge and compass to construct: an equilateral triangle; the midpoint and perpendicular bisector of a line segment; the bisector of an angle
    • Find the locus of points, eg the locus of points equidistant to two given points
    • Understand, by their experience of constructing them, that triangles satisfying SSS, SAS,
    • ASA and RHS are unique, but SSA triangles are not
    • Recall and use angle properties of equilateral, isosceles and right-angled triangles
    • Recall and use the properties of squares, rectangles, parallelograms, trapeziums, rhombuses and kites
    • Recall and use properties of circles
    • Appreciate why some shapes tessellate and why some shapes do not tessellate
    • Recognising simple transformations of 2-D shapes

Prior Knowledge:

    • An ability to use a pair of compasses
    • Understanding of the terms perpendicular and parallel

Key Vocabulary:
