Today we use tangram to make squares. Tangram consists of 7 pieces: 2 big triangles, 1 medium triangle, 2 small right angle triangles, 1 square and 1 parallelogram.
I enjoyed exploring the many ways to find out:
1. How many different sizes?
2. How many ways to create the shape of one size?
3. How many pieces can you use to make a bigger square?
4. Are there squares of other sizes?
5. The more pieces you use, the larger other square. Is it true?
Take a look:
The answer is: It is not true that the more pieces you use, the larger is the square.
It's a surprise, isn't it?
How many different sets of squares did we make in total?
Point to ponder: Learning is not knowing more information but to think more deeply.
