**In this activity, pupils use Geoboards (manufactured boards, printed paper versions or the virtual Geoboard available on the NRICH website) to explore properties of shapes.**The activities focus on using the geoboard work to develop pupils’ geometrical reasoning.

Year 7 Objectives:

- Identify and use angle, side and symmetry properties of triangles and quadrilaterals
- Explore geometrical problems involving these properties, explaining reasoning orally, using step-by-step deduction supported by diagrams
- Understand and use the language and notation associated with reflections, translations and rotations
- Explore these transformations and symmetries using ICT

- Know that if two 2-D shapes are congruent, corresponding sides and angles are equal
- Identify all the symmetries of 2-D shapes
- Try out mathematical representations of simple combinations of these transformations
