Jimmy from Freshwater State School managed to produce a rectangle that was $4$ by $8$. Well done Jimmy. I am guessing that many may have explored various shapes that they produced but did not feel they could send in their findings.

I would like to remind everyone that we are interested in what happens from the starting point - it does not have to be a final concluding result - but feel free to send them in.

How many different ways can you find to join three equilateral triangles together? Can you convince us that you have found them all?

Two children made up a game as they walked along the garden paths. Can you find out their scores? Can you find some paths of your own?
