Geometry is a word we use in maths. It means the study of shapes. In this, the second of our Easy Eleven Plus maths quizzes on Shapes, we look at some of the terms we use in geometry, like vertex, polygon, radii and perimeter, for example.
The format of this quiz is a little bit different to what you’d normally expect in maths. We’ll be giving you the definition of a word and asking you to find the term we are describing. It’s the sort of thing you’d find in an English exam, with one small difference – all the words we ask you for are terms used in geometry to describe shapes and their properties.
Even if you do not know some of the words, you will probably be able to work out the answers by using logic and reason to eliminate any red herrings. Just take your time and be sure you understand the question before you choose your answer.
Once you have got all ten answers right, why not move on to the next quiz? The more you practice, the better you will understand shapes. Good luck!
