Moveable Squares

Fach:

Schlagwörter Nets, 2D shapes, Symmetry

Move congruent squares to form nets, polyominoes and other shapes. (Ideally used with TI-Nspire Navigator)

 

A rich environment in which to explore ideas of symmetry and various other mathematical concepts.

The TI-Nspire document provides pages with 3, 4, 5 and 6 squares. Although the document is perfectly usable by students working alone, it was particularly designed for use with TI-Nspire Navigator with the Screen Capture tool.

Three example activities are:

  • Create arrangements with one line of symmetry
  • Arrange five squares to make pentominoes
  • Construct nets of a cube
