Worksheet Overview

Spelling is often thought of as a skill needed for English lessons, but many words in other subjects are tricky to spell, and it can be frustrating if you know the word you want to write but don't know how to spell it.

 

In this worksheet you can practise spelling some of the terms you will come across in your maths lessons when you are working in the area of shape, space and measures.

 

Read the following terms and their definitions and try to remember the spellings.

equilateral triangle a triangle with equal length sides and equal angles
isosceles triangle a triangle with two sides of equal length and two equal angles
scalene triangle a triangle with all sides of different length and all angles of different size
quadrilateral a polygon with four sides
parallelogram a quadrilateral whose opposite sides are parallel
rhombus a parallelogram with all four sides of equal length
trapezium a quadrilateral with one pair of parallel sides
parallel two lines or planes at equal distance from each other; they will never meet
perpendicular a line at a 90 degree angle to another line
hypotenuse the longest side of a right angle triangle
