    Students love to explore creative math activities while designing foldable constructions!

    Recreational math spans all sorts of activities from simple games and designs to puzzles and brainteasers that require math to solve. Not the typical “learn the formula and apply” approach, these activities use math concepts to solve problems as part of the activity itself. This bundle celebrates Martin Gardner, who for years wrote a monthly column on “recreational mathematics” for Scientific American. His first article covered hexaflexagons (fourth activity in this bundle). Enjoy!

    Products in this Recreational Math Series include:

    Pi Day Circle Art Decorations and Constructions (& Stickers)

    Six Fold Snowflakes Symmetrical Folding Activity

    Trihexaflexagon Equilateral Triangle Folding Activity

    Hexahexaflexagon Equilateral Triangle Folding Activity

    Algebraic Magic Squares Puzzle & Folding Activity

    Making Mandalas Using Radial Symmetry

    Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt. They consider analogous problems, and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution. They monitor and evaluate their progress and change course if necessary. Older students might, depending on the context of the problem, transform algebraic expressions or change the viewing window on their graphing calculator to get the information they need. Mathematically proficient students can explain correspondences between equations, verbal descriptions, tables, and graphs or draw diagrams of important features and relationships, graph data, and search for regularity or trends. Younger students might rely on using concrete objects or pictures to help conceptualize and solve a problem. Mathematically proficient students check their answers to problems using a different method, and they continually ask themselves, "Does this make sense?" They can understand the approaches of others to solving complex problems and identify correspondences between different approaches.
