# Year 9: Shape, space and measure task

These are plans for two lessons in mathematics at Key Stage 3, across levels 3, 4, 5 and 6. Find out which topics are covered and the relevant Assessing Pupilsâ€™ Progress (APP) assessment criteria.

## Lessons covered

• Wrap Around
• Prismatic

For classes consisting only of pupils at levels 3 and 4, you may wish to explore the material in lesson 1 more thoroughly, using interlocking cubes and creating the bands from squared paper, rather than progressing to lesson 2.

## APP assessment criteria

These lessons may generate evidence to help inform judgements against the following assessment criteria:

### Shape, space and measure

• Level 6: deduce and use formulae for the area of a triangle and parallelogram, and the volume of a cuboid; calculate volumes and surface areas of cuboids.
• Level 6: know and use the formulae for the circumference and area of a circle.

### Using and applying mathematics

• Level 6: solve problems and carry through substantial tasks by breaking them into smaller, more manageable tasks, using a range of efficient techniques, methods and resources, including ICT; give solutions to an appropriate degree of accuracy.
• Level 6: present a concise, reasoned argument, using symbols, diagrams, graphs and related explanatory texts.
