Triangle Grid Paper

What is the resource?

This PDF offers a special grid. Instead of squares, it's filled with tiny triangles! It suits various ages, but primary learners benefit particularly.


Why is triangular paper important?

Triangles unlock maths explorations beyond standard grids:

  • Tessellations: Students discover how triangles 'tile' with no gaps - build pattern sense.
  • Angle exploration: The grid makes 60° angles obvious everywhere, aiding geometry study.
  • Fractions & symmetry: Slicing a triangular grid offers unique shapes & patterns.
  • Design inspiration: Architects and artists use this style of layout for its special properties.


Why is this resource helpful?

Triangular grids build spatial reasoning in different ways than square ones:

  • Encourages precision: Plotting points, and drawing lines accurately is a bit trickier.
  • Promotes creativity: The triangle base opens up tessellation art, unique grids, and more.
  • Makes connections: Suddenly triangles 'pop up' in the world like never before.
  • Printable PNG: Gives teachers endless copies for lessons, games, or take-home exploration.

This resource sparks curiosity. Students see 'ordinary' maths through a new lens and discover deeper patterns hiding in simple shapes.
