Question 3

Ab and cd

Tick AB and CD (boxes 1&3) I think!

And it's a trapezium.

Ab and cd are parallel. Whose maths hw is it? Surely it is revising what has been covered in class?

Was thinking that each line was lettered individually

So top line A, right downwards B, bottom line C, upwards left D!

Makes sense now

DDs homework. Sats prep and she is sobbing (real life tears) over her maths again. She hates year 6 with a passion

How sad can you sieak to the teacher? No child should be under that much pressure for a test that has no personal implications. Can you downplay it?

Cd/ab are parallel and it's a trapezium

Isn't the shape a rectangle?

The shape of the box to write your answer in is a rectangle pusspuss

The name of the shape they are asking about is a trapezium

A straight line is the shortest way to get from one point to another (for Y6 Maths, we could get more complicated if you want!).

So the line from point A to point B is called AB.
