These wonderful tiles are
excellent for helping 
young mathematicians
explore concepts in Geometry!

Overview

These fantastic polygon tiles are ideal for older students delving into Geometry in their mathematical studies, but also can be used for younger students for freeform play and beginning exploration into Geometry.

          These polygon tiles can be used with your child to numerous concepts in Geometry, including:

  • Shapes
  • Angles
  • Surface Area
  • Perimeter
  • Symmetry
  • Transformations
  • Congruency
  • And, with the help of graph paper, Graphing and Cartesian Coordinates.

 

For clear definitions on each of these concepts, we recommend visiting:

We also recommend taking time to explore:

  • how larger tiles can be broken up into smaller tiles,
  • and how to build complex shapes and pictures starting with smaller tiles.
