Playing with tangrams is a great way to learn about polygons, explore mathematical concepts like transformations (translations, reflections, rotations) or symmetry and practice spatial awareness, problem solving skills and fine motor skills.
The objective of the game is to recreate the tangram shapes next to the puzzle cards using all 7 puzzle pieces (1 square, 1 parallelogram, 2 small triangles, 1 medium triangle and 2 large triangles). If your kids find it hard to recreate the tangram shapes next to the puzzle cards, you can use the math mats. The provided puzzle pieces will fit perfectly.
This small 'try before you buy' pack contains puzzle cards and math mats of the Mayflower. Also included are puzzle pieces (line art).
