exercise introduces the names of basic geometric shapes and practices recognizing some of their defining characteristics.
Types of Problems
There is essentially one type of problem in this exercise:
- Select all of the type of shape: This problem specifies a shape and asks the student to select all of that type of shape from the multiple select list.
This exercise is easy to attain accuracy badges, but speed badges are hard because the shapes are not necessarily regular (so user has to actually count the sides) and they may have to select up to all five options.
- The problem asks for the following shapes: circle, trapezoid, square, rectangle, rhombus and hexagon.
- The ancient Egyptians from over 4000 years ago were very good at shapes and geometry. Every time the Nile burst its banks and flooded the planes, they had to use geometry to measure their gardens and fields all over again.
- Architects use shapes to construct houses and skyscrapers.
