Puzzle Booklet - Greek to Latin Cross

Puzzle Booklet – Greek to Latin Cross These booklets are produced in Hungary by hand in limited editions; their contents are made of laser cut wood. The Greek to Latin Cross has two challenges:  Fill the Latin Cross shaped hole.  Fit all the pieces into the “smaller” Greek cross. Is it possible? Paradoxically it is. The Hungarian mathematician Farkas Bolyai proved that any two polygons with the same area can be dissected into each other.  This puzzle beautifully shows an extension of this theorem.  Here, three polygons are dissected into each other. Cleverly designed with an attractively innovative book cover.  Solution is included. Made by Péter Gál.

Fit all the pieces into each frame inside the booklet.

While there are a plethora of references regarding the benefits of reading books, playing games, etc., this article focuses on the value of wooden jigsaw puzzles as a catalyst for learning in early childhood.
