Space and geometry

Space and geometry is the study of spatial forms. It involves representation of shape, size, pattern, position and movement of objects in the three-dimensional world, or in the mind of the learner.

  • In the primary curriculum students learn to recognise, visualise and draw shapes, and describe the features and properties of three-dimensional objects and two-dimensional shapes in static and dynamic situations.
  • In the secondary curriculum students will continue to develop knowledge, skills and understanding in spatial visualisation and geometric reasoning.
  • Teaching strategies for this strand include a range of engaging interactive activities for Early Stage 1 to Stage 5 to support the development of skills in this strand.
  • Teachers may adapt many of these resources to suit specific needs.
