## Section 3 - Working with Shapes

Polyominoes are simply patterns made from squares

a. Making squares b. Rule for playing with polyominoes c. Making patterns
Question: Make as many different patterns as you can with two squares (called Dominoes). Remember the rule!
Question: Make as many different patterns as you can with three squares (called Trominoes) Remember the rule!

There is only one different pattern possible with two squares.
There are two different patterns possible with three squares. Where you right? Question: Make as many different patterns as you can with five squares (called Pentominoes).
Question: Make as many different patterns as you can with six squares (called Hexominoes). d. Areas and perimeters of polyominoes  ### Symmetry

a. Lines of symmetry   b. Look around you for symmetry c. Rotational symmetry d. Regular shapes and symmetry e. Symmetrical classification of the alphabet ### Solids (Volume) a. Collecting solids
Make your own collection of various solids: b. Counting faces, vertices and edges
Count the number of faces, vertices and edges on a variety of solids.  c. Making and folding a cube
Copy out the grid of squares below (squares 3 x 3 cm): d. Making a tetrahedron e. A parcel
