Cover the Triangle
Cover large triangles using specific pattern blocks shapes.
Overview of Math Concept:
Students use specific shapes to fill in the area of a certain size triangle. They determine how many ways this can be done. Problem solving, logical reasoning and visual discrimination are skills used to solve the problem.
Find as many different solutions as possible.
- 2 green triangles
- 2 blue rhombi
- 1 red trapezoid
- Worksheet of 4 large triangles
- Use 2 green triangles, 2 blue rhombi, and 1 red
trapezoid to cover each large triangle.
- Cover each large triangle a different way.
- Color-in solutions.
- Discuss with a classmate how you know when you've found
all the solutions.
