Abstract / Synopsis
Pattern blocks are versatile manipulatives facilitating connections that can be made among various strands of mathematics such as number sense, algebra, geometry and measurement, spatial reasoning, probability and trigonometry. This note focuses on an artistic interpretation of the pattern blocks with primary focus on convex polygons made with pattern blocks, and describes five mathematically rich activities using them.
