Look at this umbrella. Measure the length of the tallest spoke and use your answer to work out the total length of all the spokes. If you had a picture of the whole umbrella what shape would you see between 2 spokes? Can you find this picture in your playground? Are the black and yellow triangles equilateral, isosceles or scalene? Work out the area of one triangle and use it to work out the area of the whole border. Area of triangle = Area of border = If I turned all the triangles around 180 degrees what would the border look like? Can you find this picture in your playground? Look at this picture. How many perpendicular lines are there? If I had 6 different keys for these 6 lockers what is the probability (as a fraction) of choosing the right key for the right locker? Measure how tall the lockers in the middle are. Now use that answer to evaluate how tall 16 lockers would be including the rectangles in the middle. Can you find this picture in your playground? How many sides do you think these shapes have? One or two? Estimate how many shapes are there in this picture. There are two versions of the shape. How many degrees would you have to turn one shape to get to the other? Can you find this picture in your playground? What is the ratio of lighter whole bricks to darker whole bricks in this picture? Is this a tessellation of a regular polygon? What is the name of the polygon? Measure the length and the width of one rectangle? Work out the area of the whole shape? Can you find this picture in your playground? What is the most common shape in this picture? How many houses can you see in the background? Estimate the area of the blue part of the picture? Can you find this picture in your playground? Estimate the number of squares in this picture. What is the ratio of white parts to dark parts? Work out the area of this shape. How many parallel lines can you see? How many perpendicular lines can you see? Can you find this picture in your playground? Estimate the number of rectangles can you see. What is the circumference of this circle? What is the area of the rectangular pattern border? What is the area and circumference of the smallest circle you can find? What is the area and perimeter of a small rectangle? Can you find this picture in your playground? Measure the height of each cylinder in this picture and add the measurements together. What are the measurements? Put these measurements in order starting with the highest.
