Challenge the spatial reasoning of even the most gifted students. This puzzle rearranges 23 polygonal pieces to form 4 different regular polygons - an equilateral triangle, a square, a hexagon, and an octagon. Magnetic foam pieces are big enough to allow a group of students to comfortably work together on the puzzle. Classroom activities and blackline masters are included, with 4 activities designed to address specific Common Core State Standards for Mathematics for 8th grade and high school geometry. Measures 9-5/8 in. x 9-5/8 in. x 3/16 in. when assembled. Grades 7-12.
