# Spatial Techniques

This collection of Level 1 resources from Nuffield Mathematics covers Spatial techniques. The demand is roughly equivalent to that in Foundation Level GCSE and Level 1 Functional Mathematics.

They include slide shows to introduce the topics, student sheets and teachers' notes.

The teachers' notes start with a short overview of the activity, who and what it is designed for, and the necessary resources. The student sheets have background information where needed, and tasks for the students to work and reflect on. Extensions and solutions are included in the teachers' notes.

The collection includes the following resources:

**What is it? ** Recognising and drawing objects from different viewpoints.

**Convert lengths** Practice in converting between different metric units of length, using exercises on a worksheet, a bingo game and a dominoes game.

**Volume** Students find the volume of a variety of cuboids in real life contexts.

**Geometrical design** Helping students to recognise geometrical shapes and their properties.

**Measure it!** Estimating lengths and measuring objects using both centimetres and millimetres.

**Plans** Students measure lengths from scale drawings then use ratio scales to find the actual lengths.

**Arranging the furniture** Students design a new layout for the classroom, measuring the furniture, making scaled cut-outs, and placing them on a prepared plan.

**How much will it cost?** Students measure dimensions from scale drawings and find the areas of rectangles and triangles. They then calculate the amount of paint needed to paint a house and its cost.

**Perimeter and area** How much lawn feed is needed? Students find the perimeter and area of rectangles and shapes made from rectangles.

**Drawing shapes in Word** Students learn how to draw and format basic shapes in Word.
