A Fun Geometry Puzzle Site

I spend a lot of time following some fine math teachers on Twitter.  If you are a math teacher and haven't yet succumbed to this new social media, I highly recommend it.

Start by following Dan Meyer, and then work your way through others that he follows or who follow him.  What a Professional Learning Group!!  Sue VanHattum (MathMama) showed up in my feed today.  She shared this site:

This site starts you out with 2 points.  From there you create circles and attach segments to create certain shapes.  It tells you what the minimum number of moves it can be made in and also the max, I think.  It is really fun trying to do the minimum!  So go forth and have a blast!

This is Sue's "Circle Pack 7".  I am impressed!
