This activity investigates how you might make squares and pentominoes from Polydron.
Find the missing coordinates which will form these eight
quadrilaterals. These coordinates themselves will then form a shape
with rotational and line symmetry.
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.
Thank you to pupils from Woodchester
Endowed School who worked out how to move the yellow spot through
the tube. Ben said:
Several children from Gorseland Primary
School sent in images for a tube which both spots could follow.
Here are Nell's,George's and Alex's drawings:
Fantastic! Can you describe how
they've created their tubes?
