Hex-A-Gone! Makes use of pattern blocks to develop geometric and spatial skills as well as estimation, measurement, and the part-to-whole concept of fractions.
The Hex-A-Gone!™ gameboard is comprised of connected hexagons, trapezoids, rhombi and squares which students cover using pattern block shapes (triangles, two types of rhombi, trapezoids, squares, and hexagons). Students may use one or more blocks to fill a geometric region. For each turn students choose one, two, or three pattern blocks in an attempt to be the last player to place a block on the board (the goal). A limited number of blocks in the bank and available spaces on the gameboard motivate students to carefully observe and analyze their options. A wide array of mathematical skills are enhanced by playing this game including spatial visualization, estimation, measurement, fractions, and deductive and inductive thought.
