Overview

The concepts in Year 4 Geometry are aligned with the course content in the Measurement and Geometry strand of the Australian curriculum. Students studying Geometry in Year 4 name and compare 2D shapes and 3D objects, such as spheres, cylinders and cones. They combine 2D shapes to make a composite shape and connect geometry with measurement by exploring comparisons between the area and perimeter of rectangles.

Topics & Concepts We Cover

This learning program is made up of the following 3 topics, broken down into 25 concepts.

  • Introducing Compass Points, Legends and Keys 6 concepts

    1. Calculate the distance between two points on a map using a simple given scale

    2. Use scales involving multiples of 10 to calculate the distance between two points on maps and plans

    3. Recognise that the same location can be represented by maps or plans using different scales

    4. Use a compass to find north and then east, south and west

    5. Use a legend or key to locate specific objects on a map

    6. Use NE, SE, SW and NW to indicate north-east, south-east, south-west and north-west, respectively, on a compass rose

  • Naming Angles 4 concepts

    1. Recognise and describe angles as less than, equal to, about the same as or greater than a right angle

    2. Classify the angles made by the hands of a clock

    3. Classify angles as acute, right, obtuse, straight, reflex or a revolution

    4. Use the term right angle to describe the angle formed when perpendicular lines meet

  • 3D Objects and 2D Shapes 15 concepts

    1. Sketch three-dimensional objects, attempting to show depth and compare these with other drawings and photographs

    2. Draw different views of an object constructed from connecting cubes on isometric grid paper

    3. Interpret given isometric drawings to make models of three-dimensional objects using connecting cubes

    4. Combine common two-dimensional shapes, including special quadrilaterals, to form other common shapes or designs

    5. Create and record tessellating designs by reflecting, translating and rotating common shapes

    6. Identify shapes that do and do not tessellate

    7. Draw the reflection to complete symmetrical pictures and shapes, given a line of symmetry

    8. Split a given shape into two or more common shapes and describe the result

    9. Compare the area of the given shape with the area of each of the shapes it is split into

    10. Investigate types of three-dimensional objects used in commercial packaging and give reasons for some being more commonly used

    11. Translate, reflect and rotate a two-dimensional shape, recognising that the properties of the shape does not change

    12. Identify and describe cubes and prisms

    13. Identify and describe pyramids

    14. Identify and describe spheres, cones and cylinders

    15. Sketch three-dimensional objects from different views, including top, front and side views
