This exercise is easy to attain accuracy badges but is medium difficulty to attain speed badges. The major hindrance to getting speed badges is the multiple select option and the fact that the pictures do not always fit on a screen easily and so it involves some shrinking or maneuvering to see all shapes.

  1. Be prepared to cut rectangles and circles. Also expect horizontal, vertical, and diagonal cuts.
  2. Research indicates cuts are only made into 2, 3 or 4 pieces.
