Participants will engage in various pentomino tasks that involve visualizing and reasoning spatially, comparing and analyzing 2-D and 3-D shapes, and using transformations. Pentominoes will be used to investigate perimeter, area, and volume. Several games and puzzles—links to children’s literature—will be shared.
