Odette De Meulemeester, a middle school teacher in Belgium, has been a big booster of my books. She regularly treats her students to recreational mathematics activities involving pentominoes, dissections, and similar material. Below we see one of Odette's students using construction paper to build a piano-hinged loop like those that I discuss in Chapter 11. I hope that she had a lot of fun exploring what she could do with the loop!
Be sure to check out Odette's website Pentomino.
