The kids have noticed that Uncle Norm’s old quilt is quite thread bare and they decide to make a new one using a super cool design. With help from the Inventonator, they see that interesting designs can start with just one triangle! The Rads pay a visit to a star quilter, who teaches them how flipping, sliding and turning one triangle can make some really awesome patterns!

The Gist: This episode is about slides, flips and turns. These are geometric motions that change the position and/or orientation of a geometric shape but preserve its qualities (e.g., angle measures, lengths of sides, area).
