Product Description
Colorful tangrams – Tangram polygons 2

Here is a nice game to practice critical thinking and problem-solving skills. It’s also a perfect game for early finishers because each single card can be used as a short math activity.

The basic object of the game is to construct polygons using 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7 puzzle pieces. The cards are numbered. They start with simple polygons and become progressively more difficult.

Card 1-8: use 2 pieces
Card 9-23: use 3 pieces
Card 24-46: use 4 pieces
Card 47-69: use 5 pieces
Card 70-73: use 6 pieces
Card 74-80: use 7 pieces

The puzzle pieces are larger than the polygons on the game cards as the pieces are not made to “fit” the polygons on the cards. The intention is to reproduce the polygon next to the game card.

The game cards are designed to print double sided (front = puzzle / back = solution). Young students and beginners can sneak a peek at the solution on the back of the game card if they get stuck solving the puzzle.

Also included is a chart with numbers so the students can record the puzzles they have solved. On the back of the chart students can tally how many polygons the can make with # of pieces.

Number of players: 1-2
Polygons: Triangle, square, rectangle, trapezoid, parallelogram and hexagon
