E3.19 Sort 2-D and 3-D shapes using properties including lines of symmetry, length, right angles, angles including in rectangles and triangles

These two PowerPoints cover the properties of 2D and 3D shapes (E2-E3) - faces, edges, vertices and line symmetry. This is assessed using a quiz in PPT1. Both PPTs then move on to recognising nets and drawing nets of cubes and cuboids (now found in Level 1 exams). The second PPT can be printed off and used as a workbook. I have also included two links to You tube but you can use your own favourite shape/nets video links if you prefer.

**Editor's note**

Name each 2D shape and describe its properties. Two separate worksheets: one for triangles, one for quadrilaterals. For Entry Level, hence angles are not a focus.

For each of the 6 quadrilaterals and 4 triangles, the learner is prompted to answer these questions:

Name each 3D object and fill in the gaps about their properties.

For each of the 9 common 3D shapes, the learner is prompted to complete information about:

- its name
- the number of curved and/or flat faces
- the shape of the faces
- the number of vertices (corners)
- the number of edges

**Editor's note**

Answer sheet with detailed Functional Skills Maths mapping is available to contributors only

Name each 2D shape and describe its properties.

For each of the 8 common shapes, the learner is prompted to answer these questions:
