# Stage 1, mathematics, Year B – Unit 25

New shapes can be made by joining (combining) or partitioning (breaking apart) existing shapes – developing student knowledge, skills and understanding of how new shapes can be formed from other shapes.

In this unit, students will learn to:

• explore how shapes can be made by joining (combining) and breaking apart (partitioning) existing shapes
• create new shapes by adding or removing sides and vertices (corners)
• recognise how two-dimensional (2D) shapes can be classified into different categories according to their features
• create linear patterns with shapes that transform (slide and reflection)
• make designs with symmetry from reflection
• measure areas using uniform informal units
• recognise, sort, and describe the features of three-dimensional (3D) objects
• use concrete materials to model subdividing a whole length into both halves and quarters
• model sharing and grouping collections of objects to represent division.
