#### United Kingdom – National Curriculum expand/collapse

• ##### KS1.Ma3 – Shape, space and measures
• Knowledge, skills and understanding

• Understanding patterns and properties of shape

• KS1.Ma3.2 – Pupils should be taught to:

• KS1.Ma3.2.a – Describe properties of shapes that they can see or visualise using the related vocabulary

• KS1.Ma3.2.b – Observe, handle and describe common 2-D and 3-D shapes; name and describe the mathematical features of common 2-D and 3-D shapes, including triangles of various kinds, rectangles including squares, circles, cubes, cuboids, then hexagons, pentagons, cylinders, pyramids, cones and spheres

• Using and applying shape, space and measures

• KS1.Ma3.1 – Pupils should be taught to:

• Communicating

• KS1.Ma3.1.d – Use the correct language and vocabulary for shape, space and measures

• Reasoning

• KS1.Ma3.1.e – Recognise simple spatial patterns and relationships and make predictions about them

• ##### KS2.Ma3 – Shape, space and measures
• Knowledge, skills and understanding

• Understanding measures

• KS2.Ma3.4 – Pupils should be taught to:

• KS2.Ma3.4.c – Recognise angles as greater or less than a right angle or half-turn, estimate their size and order them; measure and draw acute, obtuse and right angles to the nearest degree

#### Australia – Australian Curriculum expand/collapse

• ##### Measurement and Geometry
• Shape

• ACMMG042 – Describe and draw two-dimensional shapes, with and without digital technologies

• ##### Measurement and Geometry
• Geometric reasoning

• ACMMG064 – Identify angles as measures of turn and compare angle sizes in everyday situations

• ##### Measurement and Geometry
• Shape

• ACMMG088 – Compare and describe two dimensional shapes that result from combining and splitting common shapes, with and without the use of digital technologies

• ##### Measurement and Geometry
• Location and transformation

• ACMMG114 – Describe translations, reflections and rotations of two-dimensional shapes. Identify line and rotational symmetries

#### New Zealand – National Standards expand/collapse

• ##### 2.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 2.GM.2 – Sort objects and shapes by different features and describe the features, using mathematical language

• ##### 3.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 3.GM.2 – Sort objects and two- and three-dimensional shapes by their features, identifying categories within categories

• ##### 4.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 4.GM.2 – Sort objects and two- and three-dimensional shapes by two features simultaneously

• ##### 5.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 5.GM.2 – Sort two- and three-dimensional shapes, considering the presence and/or absence of features simultaneously and justifying the decisions made

• ##### 6.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 6.GM.3 – Sort two- and three-dimensional shapes (including prisms), considering given properties simultaneously and justifying the decisions made

#### United States – Common Core State Standards expand/collapse

• ##### 2.G – Geometry
• Mathematics

• 2.G.1 – Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. (Sizes are compared directly or visually, not compared by measuring.) Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.

• ##### 4.G – Geometry
• Mathematics

• 4.G.2 – Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles.

• ##### 5.MD – Measurement & Data
• Mathematics

• 5.G.3 – Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.
