SPACE

The Space dimension focuses on developing students’ understanding of shape and location. These are connected through forms of representation of two- and three-dimensional objects and the ways in which the shapes of these objects and their ideal representations can be moved or combined through transformations. Students learn about key spatial concepts including continuity, edge, surface, region, boundary, connectedness, symmetry, invariance, congruence and similarity.
Principal operations for computation with space include identification and representation, construction and transformation by hand using drawing instruments, and also by using dynamic geometry technology. (Source:DEECD)
