Testimonials

What a brilliant site you have!!! I love it, especially as it saves me hours and hours of hard work. Others who haven't found your site yet don't know what they are missing!

It is quite frankly the best money I have ever spent on my child. I really cannot thank you enough for providing this, it really is brilliant.

You have the most amazing program. Everybody loves it and the student's results have been in the high 90%'s, it's definitely due to your program.

  • KS2.Y6 – KS2 Year 6
    • Year 6 programme of study
      • KS2.Y6.G.PS – Geometry - properties of shapes

        • Pupils should be taught to:

          • KS2.Y6.G.PS.5 – Recognise angles where they meet at a point, are on a straight line, or are vertically opposite, and find missing angles

  • KS2.Y5 – KS2 Year 5
    • Year 5 programme of study
      • KS2.Y5.G.PS – Geometry - properties of shapes

        • Pupils should be taught to:

          • KS2.Y5.G.PS.4 – Identify:

            • KS2.Y5.G.PS.4.b: angles at a point on a straight line and half a turn (total 180°)

  • Year 6
    • Measurement and Geometry
      • Geometric reasoning

        • ACMMG141 – Investigate, with and without digital technologies, angles on a straight line, angles at a point and vertically opposite angles. Use results to find unknown angles

  • 7 – Year 7
    • 7.GM – Geometry and measurement
      • 7.GM.4 – Sort two- and three-dimensional shapes into classes, defining properties and justifying the decisions made

  • 4 – Grade 4
    • 4.MD – Measurement & Data
      • Mathematics

        • 4.MD.7 – Recognize angle measure as additive. When an angle is decomposed into non-overlapping parts, the angle measure of the whole is the sum of the angle measures of the parts. Solve addition and subtraction problems to find unknown angles on a diagram in real world and mathematical problems, e.g., by using an equation with a symbol for the unknown angle measure.
