Investigate the different shaped bracelets you could make from 18 different spherical beads. How do they compare if you use 24 beads?
Draw three straight lines to separate these shapes into four groups
- each group must contain one of each shape.
Can you cut a regular hexagon into two pieces to make a
parallelogram? Try cutting it into three pieces to make a rhombus!
We have had a solution from someone who unfortunately didn't
give his or her name, but it says that there are $14$ different
Rectangles 1 and 4 are the same as each other.
Rectangles 5, 8, 10 and 12 are the same as each other.
Rectangles 6 and 11 (which are squares) are the same as each
Rectangles 3 and 13 are also squares but they are not the same as
each other. They are similar to 6 and 11.
Rectangles 2, 7, 9 and 14 are different to each other and not
similar to any other rectangle.
