Sorting Quadrilaterals and Triangles
In this game you’ll progress from organising the triangles and quadrilaterals that pass by on the conveyor belt into their correct groups, to looking at 3d shapes and their faces. In the first section, are the triangles scalene, isosceles or equilateral? And how many matching sides do the quadrilaterals have, if any? There are also some interesting discussion points at the end relating to flat and curved faces and properties of the shape edges.
Pack the robots into their boxes, ready to be shipped off to their new homes! Use the control panel on the left to rotate, translate and reflect if you need to, in order to fit them nicely together into the box. There are six levels of difficulty ranging from very simple shapes and templates to the more challenging obscure shapes which may need a little fiddling with before they fit nicely into the box!

Fling The Teacher
A fun quiz with an unusual reward. Answer 15 questions all about 2d and 3d shapes and their properties and then fling your teacher from a catapult, which you slowly build as you progress, similar to ‘hangman’. Careful however, you must answer all questions correctly, just one wrong answer means you will have to start from the very beginning. You can even design your teacher with various hairstyles, skin colours and features to look like your very own teacher.
