Overview

The concepts in Year 3 Geometry are aligned with the course content in the Measurement and Geometry strand of the Australian curriculum. Students studying Geometry in Year 3 name and compare 3D objects and 2D shapes, such as trapezia, rhombuses, rectangles, pyramids and prisms. Additional concepts include naming, drawing and estimating angles and their properties and using grid references to locate positions on a map.

Topics & Concepts We Cover

This learning program is made up of the following 3 topics, broken down into 21 concepts.

  • Identifying and Comparing 3D Objects and 2D Shapes 12 concepts

    1. Compare the rigidity of two-dimensional frames of three sides with the rigidity of those of four or more sides

    2. Identify, compare and describe quadrilaterals

    3. explain why any line through the centre of (and across) a circle is a line of symmetry

    4. Determine the number of pairs of parallel sides, if any, of each of the special quadrilaterals

    5. identify the variety of nets that can be used to create a particular prism

    6. Deconstruct everyday packages that are prisms to create nets

    7. Identify and describe cubes and prisms

    8. Identify and describe pyramids

    9. Identify and describe two-dimensional shapes as either regular or irregular

    10. Identify and draw lines of symmetry on given regular and irregular shapes

    11. Identify parallel lines in pictures and the environment

    12. Identify and describe spheres, cones and cylinders

  • Finding Angles 4 concepts

    1. Identify angles, including arms and vertex of an angle

    2. Identify perpendicular lines in pictures, designs and the environment

    3. Identify right angles in two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects

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

  • Position on a Map 5 concepts

    1. Describe the location of an object using more than one descriptor

    2. Use and follow positional and directional language

    3. Draw and label a grid on a given map

    4. Draw simple maps and plans from an aerial view, with or without labelling a grid

    5. Use grid references on maps to describe position, identifying and marking locations
