This activity investigates how you might make squares and pentominoes from Polydron.
Systematically explore the range of symmetric designs that can be
created by shading parts of the motif below. Use normal square
lattice paper to record your results.
What is the missing symbol? Can you decode this in a similar way?
We have had the following solution from Matthew, David and Jack at St. Nicolas School, Newbury. They thought there was a problem with number 6 but there isn't!
Our solutions to the missing coordinates are:
We plotted these 8 sets of coordinates, which made a symmetrical star.
