# 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.
