A series of shapes is presented. The ones with the largest and smallest areas have to be picked. (Example for this math problem)


A series of shapes is presented. The shapes are drawn on a raster so that the area of each shape can be determined by counting the squares covered. Exactly one of the shapes has the largest area, and exactly one of them has the smallest area. These shapes have to be picked. The problem can be adjusted to ask for both the largest and the smallest shape, for the largest one only or for the smallest one only.

The number of shapes presented can be chosen. The level of complexity of the shape can be selected from three options:

  1. very simple and regular shape
  2. not regulary shaped form
  3. complex shape

Shapes may have slanted edges that may cut squares in half. There is an option to allow or forbid this type of shapes.

The number of problems is selectable.
