'Shape Mapping' printed from http://nrich.maths.org/
Several of you sent very clearly explained
solutions to Shape Mapping, including Dante from Newton Prep, Jack
and Jemma from Eastwood Primary, and Jamie from Great Sankey High
School. Dante says:
1. the small circle is to C because the triangle is elongated
sideways and so is C
2.the triangle is to B because the square has a quarter taken off
it and so does B
3.the u-shape is to B because if you rotate the first shape 180
degrees clockwise and add the shape you on to the highest point on
the right of the original shape, that will also happen with the
u-shape and B
Fantastic! Jamie also sent in his own
challenge for us:
What do you think?
Can you explain why?
