Every Question Helps You Learn

The angles of a triangle total 180o.

# Position (Year 6)

In KS2 Maths, Year Six is when you get super good at playing with positions and directions! You'll know all about degrees and be a pro at spotting acute, obtuse, and right angles. Did you know a triangle has 180 degrees? Cool, right?

Now, let's talk about coordinates on a grid – it's like playing treasure hunt on a map! You'll learn how to describe where things are on the grid and even figure out what happens when you turn or flip shapes. It's like magic!

Knowing positions means reading coordinates, which are like secret codes for maps. Imagine being a map explorer! But, oh, figuring out new coordinates after turning a shape can be a bit tricky – like a puzzle you solve with a pencil and paper!

Test your brain with a fun quiz all about positions – let's see how much you remember from your super cool maths adventures!

1.
What do the angles of a triangle total?
180o
360o
200o
90o
No matter what lengths its sides are or what shape it is, the angles in a triangle always add up to 180o
2.
What is the intersection?
The point where two angles meet
The point where two coordinates meet
The point where two shapes meet
The point where two lines meet
Where two roads meet it is also called an intersection
3.
What do we call two lines that cross one another?
Intersecting
Friends
Meeting
Crisscross
Intersecting lines meet but parallel lines never do
4.
A shape has the coordinates (5,1) (1,4) (5,6) (9,4). What shape is it?
Square
Rectangle
Rhombus
Kite
5.
What is used to measure angles?
Ruler
Protractor
Tape measure
Compass
Most protractors are semi-circles divided into 180o
6.
If I turn 60o how much more do I need to turn to complete one full turn?
100o
200o
300o
400o
360o - 60o = 300o
7.
A triangle has the coordinates (1,1) (1,4) (4,1). What will the coordinates be after a quarter turn clockwise?
(1,1) (4,1) (1,-2)
(1,-1) (4,1) (1,-4)
(1,1) (4,1) (1,4)
(1,1) (4,1) (4,-4)
If you worked that out without drawing on some paper then very well done!
8.
If a triangle has a 60o angle and a 40o angle what angle is the third corner?
60o
70o
80o
90o
60o + 40o = 100o so 180o - 100o = 80o
9.
What is the total size of the other two angles in a right angled triangle?
30o
45o
60o
90o
180o - 90o = 90o so the other two angles must add up to that
10.
A rectangle has the coordinates (2,2) (2,4) (6,4). What is the fourth coordinate?
(2,6)
(6,2)
(1,6)
(4,6)
This rectangle would have its longest sides at the top and bottom
