Copy figures and patterns. Recognise and continue the pattern.

Press the cursor button in the toolbar to control the tool. Adjust the tool settings with the settings button. You can adjust the number of shapes and use additional supporting tools. Easily adjust the level of the exercises by increasing the number of shapes or by hiding helplines and shapes.

Drag a shape to the right-hand side of the white field and drop it. If the shape is placed correctly, it will remain in the white field. If the shape is not placed correctly, the shape returns to its original place below the white field.

If the pattern has been copied correctly, an animation appears. Select 'Reset' to clear all patterns on the right-hand side or use the '<' and '>' buttons next to the pattern to display another pattern.
