This is third in what I hope will be a long series of projects taken from Catriona Shearer’s geometry puzzles. You can find the other projects by searching for her name on the blog.
Today’s puzzle is from February:
My son was able to solve this one and he walks through his solution below:
After he solved the problem I had him find a solution in the problem’s twitter thread. He picked the solution from Rich Holmes:
He presents this solution below and explains why he thought it was interesting.
We also got two phone calls (updates on the corona virus from our local government) during the filming – sorry about that distraction.
I’m really enjoying these “present your solution / present a second neat solution” projects. Catriona’s puzzles and twitter threads are fantastic for exploring geometry with kids.
