    There is no point in you giving answers – you can click on the Notes for Teachers and find the answers there. Your first two answers are wrong. Can you see why?

    These comment boxes are for discussion different teachers incorporate these problems into their lessons.

    This is a very good exercise but I think they will also need to cut out the shapes and try to put them together practically.After that they can also name the shapes and give their properties.
