Toying with Tangrams

$23.00

Description

The Tangram is a puzzle made up of seven pieces, triangles, squares and a parallelogram. These seven shapes may be combined to develop various mathematics concepts such as shape, symmetry, similarity, congruence, perimeter, area and fractions.

This 48 page book shows how Tangrams may be used to develop deep knowledge of many geometric principles as well as some fractional understanding. Clear teacher notes and answers are provided to back up the tasks and activities in this book.
