Arrange pentomino pieces to fill given dimensions.
Solve 3D pentomino puzzles by recognizing which spaces in the puzzle the given 12 pieces can and cannot fit.
Pentaminoes, Dimension, Flip, Rotate
1. Students were given a set of 12 pentaminoes to fill a specific rectangular dimension (6x10, 5x12, 4x20, 8x8).
2. Students explored possible solutions through series of trial and error and reasoning.
Is there more than one way to arrange the pentatimnoes for the same dimension?
