Math :: Squares

I found this book at the library, called Shapes in Math, Science and Nature.  I love it.  It’s organized, it has a project/lesson per page or two.  Something we can do briefly each day.  I like books that look simple, have color, are clear, and concise. I think this book is all that.

We started from the beginning, and started with squares.  I thought this activity was a fun one.

You cut it into pieces of certain shape, to make a puzzle, that turns into a square. DSC_0157 copy DSC_0165 copy

It is so much more difficult to figure out, than we thought it would be.

Spoiler Alert!!! Here’s the solution. Don’t continue if you don’t want to know how to solve it.

It wasn’t me who figured it out first.
