DH and DD are doing something with wood and he asked her to adjust the saw to a 90 degree angle and she didn't have a clue what he meant. DH was shocked she didn't know what he meant and he wants to teach her about angles. She is 9 and in yr5. He's already ordered a geometry set to arrive in a couple of days. Can anyone recommend a good workbook that mainly focuses on angles?

CGP books are good for different subjects. They are for each year group in primary then key stage 3 and 4. We were recommended them by school and have bought the books to help our children when they have been unsure of something. We got ours from waterstones.

If you don’t mind printing stuff yourself there is a lot of angles on twinkl, I made DS some angles workbooks by collating stuff from various websites but twinkl has lots from basic primary stuff to their Beyond range which is ks3

Get a protractor and measure angles?

If you are looking at measuring angles you probably want something aimed at year 5. Any maths workbook aimed at yr 5 should have work on angles.

She should have known what a right angle was, and probably that it is 90 degrees. Might be worth seeing if there’s a white rose maths video from the summer term of year 4, in case she’s missed something.

Not a workbook but Washi tape on the ground in a doorway to show when door is at 30, 45, 60, 90 etc is a really easy interactive visual smile

May be good to do some practical work and discuss the 'bend' in a line that an angle is.

Doing turns. Such as pointing forward and turning 90 degrees.
