Split The Square Game #shorts

This simple geometrical game requires you to divide equally and conquer, and it hearkens back to the most popular math game in the history of the world: Tetris, but in reverse. The object here is to come up with every possible way to divide a square grid into two perfectly symmetrical parts. Once you start by bisecting a 4×4 grid right down the middle, you’ve got to get creative — especially as you advance to 5×5 and 6×6 grids. It’s a task that requires you to calculate, visualize, and apply rotations — but with a bit of ingenuity and elbow grease, you can complete the entire table of possible solutions.
