1. Hexagon

2. Octagon

3. Heptagon

4. 210 degrees

5. 144 degrees

Silver:

1. Pentagon = 5 sides, 35 triangles, the sum of interior angles add up to 540 degrees.

Nonagon = 9 sides, 9 triangles, the sum of interior angles add up to 1260 degrees.

Decagon = 10 sides, 8 triangles, the sum of interior angles add up to 144 degrees.

Hexagon = 6 sides, 6 triangles, the sum of interior angles add up to 120 degrees.

Pentagon:5 sides 35 triangles

Angles add up to 540 degrees

Nonagon:9 sides 9 triangles

Angles add up to 1260 degrees

Decagon:10 sides 8 triangles

Angles add up to 144 degrees

Hexagon:6 sides 6 triangles

Angles add up to 120 degrees

1). Hexagon, two down a vertical line, and two on a horizontal line.

2).The interior angles of an 8 sided octagon add up to 1080.

3).Heptagon as more sides than a hexagon but fewer than a octagon. An octagon has eight sides whilst a hexagon has 6 sides, so the only number that is in between those two values is the number 7, the specific seven sided shape is called a heptagon.

4).y= 150 Degrees

5).y= 36 Degrees

6).y= 30 Degrees

7).y= 48 Degrees

8).y= 72 Degrees

9).y= 72 Degrees

Hi Leona – Please can you do the work in school hours? This will help us to support you instantly.

A.Hexagon.

B.Octagon.

C.Heptagon.

2. 150°

B.36 °

C.30 °

D.48 °

E.72 °

F. 72°

Pentagon.hexagon. Triangle.

Good.

Reasoning???

A.)Hexagon.

2.) Octagon

3.) Heptagon

The sum interior angle of a Heptagon is 900 degrees.

Well done for trying Ayub, can you go back and complete the bronze challenge only.

Can you tell me some of the properties of these shapes?

1.)What is a regular polygon?

5 sided pentagon

A.)A Hexagon has,

6 sides.

4 triangles.

180 x 6 = 1180

B.)A Pentagon has,

7 sides.

5 triangles.

180 x 5 = 900.

Are you able to explain how you got your answers?

What is the difference between a regular and irregular shape?

1A.)Hexagon.

B.)Octagon.

C.) Heptagon.

2.) 150 degrees.

B.) 36 degrees.

C.) 30 degrees.

D.) 48 degrees.

E.) 72 degrees.

F.) 72 degrees.

3.) Alex’s shape is a Pentagon. Tommy’s shape is a hexagon. Dora’s shape is a Triangle.

Good answers.

Can you explain each of these?

1.Square this is because you can fit 4 equal triangles in there this is because a square is all equal.

2.Octoan this is because it has 8 sides.

3.Heptagon 900 degrees

Very brief. Have you answered all of the questions?

1)hexagon

2)octagon

3)heptagon

the sum interior angle of heptagon is 900 degrees

Thank you.

What is the difference between a regular and irregular shape?

I have completed this task and will send a picture via email.

Please do. Thanks.

2.

Her shape is a hexagon

His shape is an octagon

Her shape is a heptagon

Think you have got these all correct – well done.

Are you able to ‘reason’ your answers please? This will help with your understanding.

Her shape is a hexagon because if you split a polygon into 4 triangles it is a hexagon.

His shape is an octagon because the sum of the interior angles in an octagon is 1080 degrees.

Her shape is a heptagon because it has more sides than Rosie but less than Amir and that turns out to be a heptagon.

Explained well.

1) Hexagon

2) Octagon

3) Heptagon

4) 210°

5) 144°

Where is your explanations? Please can you do this? Will help with your learning.

Gold

1) Rosie drew a hexagon.

2) Amir drew an octagon.

3) Eva drew a heptagon. The internal angles of a heptagon add up to 900°.

Good – Have you completed all of Mrs Hurt’s questions?

Q1)What is a regular polygon ?

5 sided pentagon

A)The Hexagon

Has 6 sides.

Has 4 triangles.

180 x 6 = 1180

B)The Pentagon

Has 7 sides.

Has 5 triangles .

180 x 5 = 900.

Well done, Zahrah.

How is school?

How are dinners? Are you eating all of your food?

These questions will make you think!

1. Hexagon

2. Octagon

3. Heptagon

4. The sum interior angle of a Heptagon is 900 degrees.

Good. Did you do all of the questions from Mrs Hurt’s group?
