How many rectangles?

How many rectangles do you see?

This was a problem from Bruce’s homework last week. He answered the question correctly by labeling each rectangle and listing them out, all by himself.

After I checked his answer, I thought “Wow!  This would have been so much easier on a geoboard.”

Then I forced him to watch me solve the problem and endured listening to him say “Moooooom!”

And yet you listen to me without the dram.  You gotta love blogging….

So here it goes on the geoboard.  In that first picture you can see the five squares right?  Since squares are also rectangles, those are numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.  Then we’ve got:

#6


#7

#8

#9

#10


and #11
