Pentominoes Playground

There are 12 permutations for geometric figures made up of 5 squares. The pieces collectively are known as pentominoes. In this app the pieces are provided for use on the Hands-On Math Playground. The Playground offers a snap-to grid function and pieces can be placed, moved, arranged, rotated and grouped in order to represent mathematical ideas.

Topics:

The Properties of Geometric Shapes
Visual Problem Solving
Fractions (Shading Parts of a Whole)
Congruence and Similarity
Symmetry
Rotations and Translation

Activities

Students use a slider or buttons to select an activity. Here is a sample activity where the object is to move the correct pentomino pieces into the space in order to completely cover the congruent shapes.
Requirements: iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPad.
