This geometry section will help your child to become familiar with the basic concepts of planes, spaces, points, lines, the x-y-z coordinate system, angles, circle geometry, perimeters, area, and volume.

You will find a printable graph paper generator here that will assist when working on the examples in this section.

What else is in the geometry section?

extract from geometry worksheets pageThere is a listing of over 40 geometry worksheets, each one formatted for easy printing and with a built-in answer key.

extract from geometry terms and definitions page Basic geometry terms are defined. For example, those associated with lines, angles, triangles, and the like.


extract from geometric shapes page

There are a number of 2D geometry shapes that are described and illustrated. Some of the more common 3D shapes are also illustrated. There are explanations and examples of different types of quadrilaterals.

extract from congruent triangles lesson

The congruence lesson covers congruent triangles and other shapes. It introduces the concept of transformations.

The lesson on transformations includes translations, rotations, and reflections. The effect of these transformations on the cartesian coordinates of various figures is explored.

There are lessons on coordinate graphing. Coordinate Graphing System explores how x and y-axes on a grid are used to locate the coordinates of ordered pairs. Coordinate Graphing of Real-World Problems shows how ordered pairs are plotted and how resultant straight lines can be generated.

extract from the measuring angles lesson

The foundation lesson on angles explains and illustrates how angle measurement is related to parts of a circular rotation. Include guidance on classifying angles. e.g. acute, right, obtuse.

Guidance with worksheets on how to use a protractor to measure angles and how to draw angles using a protractor.

extract from the adding and subtracting to find unknown angles lesson

A lesson with worksheets on how to calculate unknown angles by adding and subtracting with adjacent angles.

There are two lessons on angles and their relationships. The first includes a look at supplementary, corresponding, and alternate angles and the second uses these relationships to find missing angles.

extract from page on surface area and nets

This page shows examples and guidance on nets and how they can be used to understand and calculate surface area for a variety of 3D shapes.

extract from similar triangles lesson

The lesson on similarity covers similar triangles and other similar shapes.

Pythagoras' Theorem is introduced with an explanation and a worksheet.

extract from pythagoras lesson

How to find the distance between two points is covered with guidance and several examples showing how, given two coordinates, the distance between them can be calculated.
