Course Description

Welcome to this Mathematics Grade 8 course, module 3 of 5 on Space & Shape.

The aim of this course is for it to be taught in a 21st century mindset. The course is actually fun, it uses technology, the internet and general knowledge to better equip a student for real life applications.

This course is intended for absolutely age 12-14 years old whom already has a foundation phase understanding in Mathematics. This course is also suitable for any end of middle-school to start of High School (US) or Grade 7-9 (UK) teachers who want to improve upon classroom teaching methods.

This course is packed with 2+ hours of video content encouraging students to answer questions throughout the videos. There are 5 modules in total, this is module 3.

1. Numbers, Operations & Relationships.
2. Patterns, Functions & Algebra.
3. Space and Shape.
4. Measurement.
5. Data Handling.

The course has been broken into 5 modules to i) allow students to only enroll in what sections they are struggling with, ii) save the parent or student cost as each module is the price of a tutoring lesson and lastly, iii) to encourage students to break goals into bite-sized chunks. There is 16+ hours of video in all five modules.

This course is intended to be a resource to help students throughout the year, it can be completed slowly and referred to throughout your year of study. The course has been broken down into the following sub-sections, each containing their own set of videos:

  • Geometry of 2D shapes
  • Geometry of 3D objects
  • Geometry of straight lines
  • Transformation Geometry
  • Construction Geometry
  • Construction of Geometric Figures


What are the requirements?

  • Basic foundation phase mathematics. Including your number line, ability to draw shapes and graphs

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Understand, in detail, the module Space & Shape, including Geometry of 2D and 3D shapes, geometry of straight lines, transformations geometry and construction of geometric figures.
  • Take the next step in their mathematically journey with a solid mathematically foundation
  • Critically apply mathematics to real world situations as well as have your mathematic knowledge extended past the classroom

Who is the target audience?

  • Students age 12-14 wanting to improve their mathematics
  • Set at Grade 8 level this can be any student at the end of middle school, start of high school (US) or grade 7-9 (UK)
  • Any relevant mathematics teachers wanting to improve upon classroom teaching methods.
  • Anyone wanting to build a strong foundation in introductory mathematics
  • Students from all over the world learning or wanting to learn mathematics in English can take this course, it is a cross-syllabus course
  • Anyone bored with the way mathematics is taught in the classroom and wanting a new exciting take on the subject

Section 1: Introduction

This video will introduce you to your lecturer and give you a break down of what is to come in the course.

Section 2: Geometry of 2D shapes

This video gives us an introduction to the section on Geometry of 2D shapes. It specifically delves into the Geometry of Triangles.


Continuing with 2D shapes this video will talk about what is similarity and how it is applied to triangles.


This video will teach students about congruency and how it applies to triangles.


Moving away from triangles, but keeping with 2D shapes, this video will deal with Quadrilaterals and their properties.

Section 3: Geometry of 3D objects

This is a fun video to give students some background into some 3D shapes.


This video will specifically talk about Vertices, Faces and Edges of 3D shapes.


In this video we are going to show you what nets are and how to build 3D objects yourself.

Section 4: Geometry of straight lines

This video will cover geometry of straight lines, specifically talking about the different types of angles.


This video will teach a student how to identify a transversal line.


An important part of straight lines are parallel lines, this video will give a student an introductory understanding about what parallel lines are.


This video will talk specifically about parallel lines with corresponding angles


This video will talk specifically about parallel lines with alternate angles


This video will talk specifically about parallel lines with co-interior angles

Section 5: Transformation Geometry

This video describes the extremely important and practical cartisian plane and how students can use it.


Now that we have a Cartesian plane we will look at how to reflect object in it in this video.


Again using the Cartesian plane we are now going to move or translate objects around the plane.


This video will describe how we can increase or decrease the size of an object using the Cartesian plane as a reference point.

Section 6: Construction of Geometric Figures

Now we are going to start looking at how to draw geometric figures. If you can get out a pencil, paper, ruler, compass and protractor and follow along with the videos. This video will show you have to bisect a line using your equipment.


Again using your equipment we will show you have to cut an angle in half, or bisect it. Even if you don't have the equipment the video is easy to understand.


In this video we will draw a perpendicular line from a given point.


In this video we will be constructing different triangles depending on the information we recieve.


Again depending what information is given to the student, this video will describe how to build quadrilaterals.


This video will show a student how to construct various angles extremely accurately using just a compass.
