Develop an aptitude for Properties of Geometrical Figures and advance into Year 11 with confidence.
Year 10 Properties of Geometrical Figures is aligned to the Australian Mathematics curriculum. This topic builds on prior knowledge and understanding of congruent and similar figures from previous years. Students studying Year 10 Properties of Geometrical Figures select appropriate tests for congruence or similarity to find unknown angles and sides of 2D shapes and to prove geometrical properties of quadrilaterals.
This learning program is made up of the following 8 topics, broken down into 23 concepts.
