Envision Math 5th Grade Textbook Answer Key Topic 20.4 Problem Solving
A pentomino is an arrangement of 5 identical squares in a plane. The squares must be attached to one another edge to edge.
Using 5 identical square tiles, how can you build 3 more pentominoes that have 3 squares in a row?
Do you know HOW?
Is the following a pentomino? Explain.
Are these two pentominoes the same or different? Explain.
Do you UNDERSTAND?
In the example above, how many more pentominoes can you find with 3 in a row?
Write a Problem Write a real-world problem that can be solved by using objects.
In 5 and 6, tell whether the pentominoes in each pair are related by a reflection or a rotation.
In 7 and 8, use objects to help you solve the problem.
How many pentominoes can you build with 5 in a row?
How many pentominoes can you build with 4 in a row?
Read and Understand
What am I asked to find?
Three more unique pentominoes that have 3 squares in a row
Two pentominoes are the same if they can be matched together by rotating or reflecting.
Plan and Solve
I can use objects to build 3 more pentominoes with 3 in a row.
Here are 3 possible solutions.
Look Back and Check
All are attached edge to edge.
All can be rotated and reflected. None are repeated.
The 3 pentominoes I’ve made are all unique.
