What is the name of the shape in the picture below?
To help work out the name of a shape, think about properties like:
How many sides it has
What sides are the same length
This video looks at the names of 2D shapes.
How many edges does each shape have?
To find the number of edges of a shape, count the number of lines that go around the shape.
manipulates, classifies and draws two-dimensional shapes, including equilateral, isosceles and scalene triangles, and describes their properties
