Numeracy

Learning objective: I can describe the rotation of 2D shapes.

I have put some words in bold and I would like you to think about what they mean.

 

Describe ____________________________________________________________

Rotation _____________________________________________________________

2D shapes ____________________________________________________________

 

Describe means to give more information about something.

The rotation of an object is the way it turns and by how much. An object can turn in a clockwise or anti-clockwise motion. We use quarter turns, half turns and three-quarter turns to describe how much something has turned.

2D shapes are completely flat, they have sides and vertices. An example of a 2D shape is a triangle.

 

Today we will be using the terms ‘clockwise’ and ‘anti-clockwise’ to describe the directions the rotations are happening. We will also be using the terms ‘quarter turn’, ‘half turn’ and ‘three-quarter turn’ to describe how much the shape is rotating. Use the image below to help you learn these new terms. 

 

Watch the video from the ‘Oak National Academy’ to learn more about rotation.

Once you have watched the first video, complete the activity below.

 

Now, watch this video from the ‘Oak National Academy’ to see how we can use rotation with shapes.

 

Now compete the activity below, applying your knowledge of rotation to shape. Show the next few shapes in the pattern and then explain what is happening in each pattern. For example, the first pattern is making a half turn clockwise or anticlockwise each time.

 

Now answer the questions below to check your knowledge of rotation.

 

The answers are attached below.
