What do you need? The Mathemino
How is it played?
Line up as many Mathemino wooden pieces as possible on their smallest side, about 2 cm apart. The snake can have curves, but not too tight. When you're done setting up, nudge the first or last Mathemino brick and they should all fall down one at a time until they're all gone. If the chain reaction of falling is interrupted somewhere, think: what is the reason? Are the stones too far apart? Or too close together? Are the curves too tight? Or did the stones fall crookedly? Find a solution until the whole Mathemino snake falls over just by bumping a rock.
