Maths Club | Tangram
On 16th November, another activity was organized by the Maths Club in the Isabel Simão Library & Resource Centre, which involved working with Tangram pieces.
A Tangram is a puzzle of Chinese origin, formed from a square that is cut into seven geometric figures, including five triangles, a square and a parallelogram. With these pieces a myriad of figures can be created, allowing students to use their reasoning skills and creativity. In addition, students work on the recognition of geometric shapes, areas and perimeters; besides studying the similarity between triangles, angles and parallel lines.
This time, students were challenged to ‘build’ the initial letter of their name.
Through this thousand-year-old game, students once again put their creativity to the test!
