In KS2 Maths, as you move to Year Five, you'll become a pro at position and direction! Imagine a compass – you'll know it inside out by now. Also, angles in a quarter, half, or full spin are your pals. You can find angles on a straight line or in a circle by taking away a given angle. Now, let's dive into marking spots using coordinates, the X axis, and the Y axis on a grid.

On a grid, we mark positions with coordinates like (3,4) or (5,6). Picture these as magical points! The first number is on the X axis, the second on the Y axis. Where they meet, that's a special spot on the grid – like making a secret code to show buried treasure on a map!

Fancy testing your skills? Play the awesome quiz below to show off your new positional wizardry!

On a grid, in which direction is the X axis?

Horizontal

Vertical

Diagonal

Curved

2.

What is the name given to an angle that is more than 90^{o} and less than 180^{o}?

Acute

Obtuse

Right angle

Scalene

An obtuse angle can be thought of as the point of a blunt pencil

3.

How many degrees is a straight line?

360^{o}

90^{o}

45^{o}

180^{o}

A circle is 360^{o} and a straight line is half a circle. 180^{o} is half of 360^{o}

4.

How would you find the coordinates 2,3?

Start at 0,0 move 2 to the right and 3 up

Start at 0,0 move 3 to the right and 2 up

Start at 0,0 move 2 up and 3 to the right

Start at 0,0 move 3 up and 2 to the right

The first coordinate is always along the X axis

5.

What is the name of the vertical axis?

B

X

Y

Z

One way to remember this is that a 'Y' looks similar to a 'V' for **V**ertical

6.

What is the name given to an angle that is less than 90^{o}?

Acute

Obtuse

Right angle

Scalene

An acute angle can be thought of as the point of a sharp pencil

7.

On a straight line, there is an angle of 72^{o}. What is the other angle?

108^{o}

208^{o}

288^{o}

98^{o}

180^{o} - 72^{o} = 108^{o}

8.

Which of these angles is obtuse?

90^{o}

75^{o}

150^{o}

200^{o}

200^{o} is not obtuse as it is more than 180^{o}

9.

Two angles make a straight line. One is 25^{o}; what is the other?

65^{o}

335^{o}

255^{o}

155^{o}

180^{o} - 25^{o} = 155^{o}

10.

Which coordinates are the first on a grid?

1,1

0,0

0,1

1,0

0,0 is the place where the X axis and the Y axis cross one another
