This resource contains exercises requiring students to answer questions relating to the dimensions of the square, the circle, sectors of circles, the cube, the cylinder and the sphere. The resource begins with teacher notes to provide some additional background information.

Squares: Students are required to find the perimeter, area, length of diagonal of a square and find the dimensions of square given the length of the diagonal. Students are required to draw squares given a selection of information about the squares.

Circles: Students are presented with a range of different diagrams containing circles within circles, compound shapes made up of parts of circles and are required to answer questions such as find the area of the shaded section of the diagram.

Squares and circle: Students answer questions relating to compound shapes made from circles, squares and triangles.

Sectors: Requires students to find the sector angle, the radius of the circle, the arc length and the area of a variety of sectors.

Cubes and spheres: Students are required to find the volume, the total surface area and a range of other dimensions relating to cubes, spheres and hemispheres.

Practical cylinders: Contains questions requiring students to find the height, diameter, curved surface area and volume of cylinders. There are also some packing problems.
