Geometry

Free CourseFree Course

Geometry is concerned with the various aspects of size, shape and space. In this free course you will explore the concepts of angles, shapes, symmetry, area and volume through interactive activities.

After studying this unit you should be able to:

  • understand geometrical terminology for angles, triangles, quadrilaterals and circles;
  • measure angles using a protractor;
  • use geometrical results to determine unknown angles;
  • recognise line and rotational symmetries;
  • find the areas of triangles, quadrilaterals and circles and shapes based on these;
  • find the volume of boxes, cyclinders and objects with constant cross-sectional areas.
