Educational material made up of a set of blocks used in mathematics and formed by several objects in different shapes and colours. They are used in geometry to form patterns, tessellations or represent translations, reflections or rotations, or to study the concept of fractions in arithmetic.
A set of mosaic blocks can include 200 or 250 blocks in different shapes and colours, the majority of which are polygons: triangles, squares, rectangles, rhombuses, trapezoids, hexagons, etc. with dimensions that allow them to be arranged by joining them at their sides. For example, a hexagon is equivalent to six equilateral triangles; an equilateral triangle has one side that is the same length as a square, etc.
Here is an example of how to use mosaic blocks:
