Yesterday we saw this incredible Numberphile video:
We did a really fun project this morning based on the video, too:
There was much more to do, though – this activity has so many different possibilities for kids! One thing that was on my mind all day was shapes with holes. While my younger son was taking a bath, I decided to try out a simple square in a square shape with my older son:
When my younger son got out of the tub he gave it a try. The cool thing was that he did it a slightly different way!
Just to emphasize that comment near the end: “hey cool . . . the fold and cut theorem is awesome!”
Can’t wait to try more shapes!
