This activity investigates how you might make squares and pentominoes from Polydron.
Using the 8 dominoes make a square where each of the columns and rows adds up to 8
Place the numbers 1, 2, 3,..., 9 one on each square of a 3 by 3 grid so that all the rows and columns add up to a prime number. How many different solutions can you find?
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?
