  • KS1 – Key Stage 1
    • KS1.Ma3 – Shape, space and measures
      • Knowledge, skills and understanding

        • Understanding patterns and properties of shape

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

Australia – Australian Curriculum expand/collapse

  • Year 2
    • Measurement and Geometry
      • Shape

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

New Zealand – National Standards expand/collapse

  • 2 – Year 2
    • 2.GM – Geometry and measurement
      • 2.GM.3 – Represent reflections and translations by creating and describing patterns

  • 6 – Year 6
    • 6.GM – Geometry and measurement

United States – Common Core State Standards expand/collapse

  • K – Kindergarten
    • K.G – Geometry
      • Mathematics

        • K.G.5 – Model shapes in the world by building shapes from components (e.g., sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes.

  • 2 – Grade 2
    • 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.

  • 3 – Grade 3
    • 3.G – Geometry
      • Mathematics

        • 3.G.1 – Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
