PENTOMINOES The informal geometry that is ingrained in pentomino discovery is an excellent nonthreateningactivity with which to provide students. pentominoes can also be http://www.andrews.edu/~calkins/math/pentos.htm
Extractions: November 20, 1995 Shapes that use five square blocks joined together with at least one common side are called pentominoes. There are twelve shapes in the set of unique pentominoes, named T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z, F, I, L, P, and N respectively. As a mnemonic device, one only has to remember the end of the alphabet (TUVWXYZ) and the word FILiPiNo. In order to make a set of unique pentominoes, there are only two rules which must be followed. First, if one shape can be rotated to look like another, the two shapes are not considered to be different. Second, if one shape can be flipped to look like another, the two shapes are not considered to be different. Since there are twelve distinct pentomino shapes with each covering five squares, their total area is sixty squares. There are several ways to place all twelve different pentominoes on an 8 x 8 board, with four squares always left over. By artistically specifying the positions of the four extra squares, many interesting patterns can be created. Another evident possibility is to require that the four extra squares form a 2 x 2 area (a square tetromino) in a specified position on the board. This placement leads to a remarkable theorem, which can be proved by using only three constructions: Wherever on the checkerboard a square tetromino is placed, the rest of the board can be covered with the twelve pentominoes. Another problem is to determine the least number of pentominoes which will span the checkerboard. In other words, some of the pentominoes are placed on the board in such a way that none of the rest can be added. Although there are several different configurations for solving this puzzle, the minimum number is five pentominoes. Other patterns include forming the configurations of 6 x 10, 5 x 12, 4 x 15, and 3 x 20 rectangles using all twelve pentominoes. The 3 x 20 is the most difficult to derive, and there is only one unique solution, except for the possibility of rotating the shaded central portion by 180 degrees.

Extractions: Ideal for students experiencing difficulty in key math requirements - presents skills and concepts in short, carefully sequenced and very focused lessons, assuming little background knowledge. Would also be good for unschoolers that need to catch up on high school requirements. Designed for independent study so includes answers for every other question plus all the review questions. The teacher guide is thus optional, giving all the answers, plus extra tests and practice, extra activities, and ideas for teaching the concepts.

Problem Solving With Pentominoes After creating the 12 pentominoes letters, students use their letters Math TEKS Problemsolving; translations; reflections; rotations; geometry (Spatial Sense http://www.tcet.unt.edu/START/instruct/lp0005.htm
Extractions: Problem Solving with Pentominoes Overview: Students create the 12 different pentomino shapes (letters) on the computer using the Logo programming language. Students build each letter based on a 30 by 30 square. Students use super procedures to create each letter. After creating the 12 pentominoes letters, students use their letters to create new "flip" letters. Students then combine letters to create five different puzzles: two different rectangles, two different sets of stairs, and a hat shape. Grade level Time frame Subject Areas TEKS 10 days of 5 minute warm ups, then 5 days in the lab Mathematics Technology Applications Use of foundation and enrichment curricula in the creation of products; Use of GroupWare, collaborative software, and productivity tools to create products; Resolve information conflicts and validate information through research and comparison of data.

Combinatorial Geometry Puzzles Soma Cubes and pentominoes are examples of tiling problems. These areall the subject of combinatorial geometry. Some Technicalities. http://www.massey.ac.nz/~bimills/comb/
Extractions: Most recent noted update on Friday 21st June 2002. Combinatorial geometry deals with the manner in which a typically finite collection of geometric shapes can be arranged. A large variety of problems come under a small number of headings. Packing Problems: Given a collection of pieces can we fit them into a region without any overlap? This is the sort of problem that you attempt to solve when you pack to go on a holiday. Questions such as ... how many oranges can you pack in a crate (formalized as how many sphere can you pack into a rectangular prism) are by and large still open questions in mathematics. The efficiency of the packing is the percentage of space that has been filled by the pieces. Covering Problems: A class of problems that are more intuitive in two dimensions, but nonetheless apply to multidimensional space. Given a collection of cloths can we cover a table completely so that nothing is showing. The efficiency of a covering is measured by the total amount of overlap of the cloths. Tiling Problems: Suppose that we can pack a set of shapes into a given area in such a way that NO space is left over. Then the packing is also a covering. These dual situations are called tiling problems.
Science And Math - Geometry collective body of Russian geometers that rejected the methods of differential geometry.Logical Art and the Art of Logic learn about pentominoes and what http://www.information-entertainment.com/ScienceMath/Geometry.html
Extractions: Please show your support for this site and visit the sponsors Science And Math - Geometry Geometry is more than about measuring angles and circles or anything to do with shapes. Although that is a big part of this subject, there is a key to how they relate to real life use. The key is logic. You might think that you only need this logic when building things, but you can use this skill of deductive reasoning in everyday life. Geometry has a basic set of postulates and theories. You must have them memorized and understand those principles before you can move too far into this subject. Once you get a grip on them, you must be able to reason how you get from point A to point Z using those principles. This is where your skills of logic come in. It is not merely a matter to accept the final result, but to understand the process of coming from the beginning to the end. Engineers and scientists will need Geometry in their professional fields. All students who plan to enter college need this skill to graduate. For them, it is mandatory to learn this subject. For everyone else, the ability to think in a logical manner will save you from making a lot of wrong choices. Geometry will help you get there.
