  • Carefully sequenced into appropriate Grades F/12, Grades 3/4 and Grades 5/6/7.
  • New files are added regularly so keep dipping in to see what’s there.
  • We believe that GEOMETRY contains a very clear progression of skills for your students. The current ACARA Codes do not show this 2D progression clearly. It is not possible to match many of our activities to the ACARA Curriculum Codes as 2D Shapes are not strongly featured in Stage 3 ACARA.
