PoW taking place: math problemsolving moment of the week

"The first thing I did when I saw this problem was to look
through my notes and find the properties of a rhombus. But
when I looked for a while at the problem, I realized this
figure, with its given measurements, cannot exist! The side
lengths are fine, the angles are fine — at least until I
looked at an invisible triangle. For the extra, I tried for
several hours but failed to find a number that would work to
make every side length and angle accurate, but I know there is
a number to make this problem true. I have simply not found
it yet."

Moebius Noodles
http://www.moebiusnoodles.com/TheBook
Moebius Noodles has come out!
Each chapter of this new book — subtitled "adventurous math
for the playground crowd" — has light bulb ideas for warmups
and on the go activities; games with variations for babies,
toddlers, older kids, and adults; and colorful posters that
tell stories about each game's main idea through pictures that
invite readers to play, ask questions, and "notice
unexpected math."
The fundraising campaign for Moebius Noodles appeared in these
pages a year and a half ago. Preorder a paperback edition of
the resulting "plug and play" book, or "name your price" and
download a PDF version by following the link above.
Using the book's associated question and answer hub, readers
have already begun discussing more than a dozen questions and
issues, such as

Noncompetitive math games

What are some suggestions for increasing fluency in
addition and multiplication without rote, timed practice?

Problem remembering numbers

How to deal with "kindergarten math is boring"?

Now taking place: math education conversation of the day

"You can make each poly by multiplying each row by itself but
after transposing, i.e., do an outer product."
