What is Geometry to me?

Geometry is the study of angles, perimeter, area and volume. Recently room 20 has been learning about translation. This means when you move a shape or something without rotating, resizing, flipping or anything else. In fact it just means sliding without changing anything visually.

A few days ago we created a grid using Google Drawing. We then, made a shape and tessellated it. If you see in my previous post, I translated my shape 4x4 which means 4 down and 4 across.

According to me learning about geometry isn’t only using your knowledge about angles, perimeter, area and volume, I personally think it has also taught me a lot of new words which I didn’t even understand at first.

My class will be learning about geometry the following term/year. It is going to be an amazing term learning about this aspect of maths because I think it’s very exciting and thrilling to learn about this topic.
