Tangram is a set of seven pieces of different shapes with 5 different sizes of triangles ( 2 big,1 middle and 2 small ) and 1 parallelogram and a square to form a rectangle. We are to use any numbers of pieces to form rectangle, first we try to use two pieces and find it impossible and so we start with 3 pieces and continued with 4, then 5 and 6 and even used the 7 pieces. Tangram is very challenging and so I went to the net to source for one web source that can play with the young children and I came across the web address http://www.abcya.com/tangrams.htm Have Fun!

Another activity is the name of BAN HAR and which letter is landed on the 99th position, this activity is also interesting, as I do it the hard way by writing the number 1 to 100 below the name and from there slowly I see a pattern but other classmate could used calculation to count out the postion which landed on the N. (99 divide by 11 =9).

The last activity is using a small piece of rectangle paper and were told to imagine that this is a cake that we have to cut it into 4 equal parts. Interesting activity too .
