# Mathematics K–10 Outcomes and content

### Objective

#### Students:

• identify, visualise and quantify measures and the attributes of shapes and objects, and explore measurement concepts and geometric relationships, applying formulas, strategies and geometric reasoning in the solution of problems

## MA4-17MG

#### Stage 5.3 outcomes

##### A student:
• manipulates, sorts and describes representations of two-dimensional shapes, including circles, triangles, squares and rectangles, using everyday language

MAe-15MG
• manipulates, sorts, represents, describes and explores two-dimensional shapes, including quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons and octagons

MA1-15MG
• manipulates, identifies and sketches two-dimensional shapes, including special quadrilaterals, and describes their features

MA2-15MG
• manipulates, classifies and draws two-dimensional shapes, including equilateral, isosceles and scalene triangles, and describes their properties

MA3-15MG
• classifies, describes and uses the properties of triangles and quadrilaterals, and determines congruent triangles to find unknown side lengths and angles

MA4-17MG
• describes and applies the properties of similar figures and scale drawings

MA5.1-11MG
• calculates the angle sum of any polygon and uses minimum conditions to prove triangles are congruent or similar

MA5.2-14MG
• proves triangles are similar, and uses formal geometric reasoning to establish properties of triangles and quadrilaterals

MA5.3-16MG
