Mathematics- continuing angles in shapes

Our students have been continuing their understanding of shapes and angles within them. We have been busy making new discoveries by looking at the relationship between a shape and its number of sides and the angle sum of that shape.

Some students have gone even further and discovered they can actually work out the individual angle size of any regular shape (one with all sides and angles equal) by understanding the relationship between the number of sides of a shape and the amount of triangles within that shape. They do this using multiplication or division and not by using a protractor.
