Counting Squares

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

This task is intended to be a simpler form of 1.G.A.2 Overlapping Rectangles. The purpose of this task is to give students an opportunity to compose and decompose squares. This is a challenging problem for first graders and it would be inappropriate to use it as an assessment. However, if presented as a brainteaser it can be useful for giving the students practice in recognizing squares, and stimulate interest as students compete to try to find the most squares.
