Welcome to our Geometry page. Here you will find lots of Geometry worksheets and learning materials to explain the different terms and formulas, such as what a triangle is, how to calculate angles in a rectangle, or how to calculate the area and perimeter of a Quadrilateral. We have a wide range of 2d and 3d shape clipart, symmetry sheets, geometry formula sheets, and shape worksheets to help your child learn their geometry facts. We also have a selection of coordinate and tessellation sheets and some worksheets for creating your own nets.
Geometry is a part of math studies throughout elementary school years. The Learning plan usually includes the following areas:
In Kindergarten, children learn to identify 2D shapes - squares, rectangles, circles, triangles, hexagons and 3D shapes - cubes, cones, cylinders, and spheres. They learn to compare simple properties of 2D and 3D shapes, such as the number of sides or corners, and to compose simple shapes into larger shapes, e.g., compose two right triangles to make a rectangle.
In first grade, children learn to identify and describe 2D and 3D shapes by some of their properties. They study 2D shapes - squares, rectangles, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles- and 3D shapes - cubes, cones, cylinders, and spheres. By the end of Year 2, children can compose different 2D and 3D shapes from a range of 2D and 3D shapes and sort these shapes using simple criteria.
In second grade, children will continue to explore geometric shapes (2D) and figures (3D). They will be able to count the number of sides in a given figure and, by the end of the year, should be able to identify parallel and perpendicular lines. Children will also learn about the concept of symmetry.
In third grade, children will begin learning about angles and different types of angles and will understand the relation between an angle and a turn. They should be able to identify different shapes and figures and know basic facts about them. They will calculate the area of the most simple shapes - square and rectangle. They will also continue learning about parallel and perpendicular lines and dive further into symmetry.
In fourth grade, children will continue learning about the angle and should be familiar with the characteristics of different shapes and figures. They will know how to calculate the area of a square and a rectangle and the perimeter of a 2D shape. They will also continue learning the parallel and perpendicular, complete shapes by symmetry, and will be introduced to the first quadrant in a Cartesian coordinate system.
In fifth grade, children will be able to measure angles and solve problems where knowledge about the sum of angles in a shape is required. They will know how to calculate the area of a triangle and a parallelogram and the perimeter of a given 2D shape. They will also continue learning about advanced topics in symmetry and the first quadrant in a Cartesian coordinate system.
In sixth grade, children will solve problems requiring knowledge about the sum of angles in a shape. They will know how to calculate the area of a triangle and a parallelogram and will also solve problems in a full Cartesian coordinate system.
