Matchstick puzzles are quiet time activity in our house these days. I have been doing them with my kids for a while now, you can check out our earlier post with matchstick puzzles Solving Equations and Changing Directions. Today’s, puzzles are solved by rearranging the matchstick so that the number of squares in the puzzle changes.
Change the Number of Identical Squares
Move two matchsticks so that we have 4 identical squares instead of 5.
Change the number of Non Identical Squares
Move 4 matchsticks to change the number of squares from 2 to 3. The resulting squares need not be identical in size.
