Draw polygons on Geoboard papers to find out how many times is it as large as the square. Rule of the game was, there must be at least 1 dot in the middle of the shape.

Do you think 12 is the answer?

**Hints: 2 similar size Triangle can form a square!**

See how all of us were engaged in trying to find the answer.

We

**!**

__Never give up__Finally after trying for countless times, Dr Yeap told us that actually Georg Alexander Pick came up with the theory that only one method / formula is applicable. And that is the formula -> A = P/2 +i - 1

**So 12 is the correct answer! Yeah!**

**You can show your children the videos below to introduce them to Geometry and Geoboards.**
