Solving Puzzles

Lower School math teams work on their visual-spatial skills by solving puzzles involving folding Patty Paper, the square paper used to separate hamburger patties, into various shapes. The puzzles range in difficulty, with the most challenging meriting badges of honor; a few of them still have not been solved! Jodi Meunier, Lower School math specialist and teacher, said, “These puzzles involve creating very specific shapes; the students can only fold along the given folds, and no cutting—or adding folds is allowed.”
