Fun Tangram
Picture Puzzle Apps

Do you like putting together a tangram picture puzzle? Do you think it is easy or hard? Do you know where it all started? The basic tangram set includes 7 flat pieces; 2 large, 2 small and 1 medium triangles, 1 square and 1 parallelogram, all cut from one square piece of paper. The basic purpose of the tangram is to use the pieces to recreate a pattern left by another. The pattern is a silhouette so no lines below to help.

I think it is a logical way to create a picture with mathematical shapes. It is an easy way to introduce geometry to the younger students. I hear myself saying, …"hmmm… we need a piece that has 4 sides…

Now in with special needs of one kind or another the effort to pick up the pieces and turn it into the right position is too much of a challenge...



...I found an app that just requires the user to tap and slide the finger to the right position and release. The piece pops into the right place. I have found others that require turning or flipping the piece into the correct position before placing.

Oh yes, where did the tangram come from? It was China.

I looked around for a tangram puzzle app where the pieces did not have to be flipped or turned to fit. Found an easy one.

This is the easiest tangram picture puzzle app to use. No turning or flipping the pieces to create a design. The pictures are challenging and the pieces are not the basic 7 shapes. This uses up to 12 pieces and those pieces are not basic shapes.

This app will help develop visual spatial awareness. If the puzzle gets too difficult not to worry, if you tap the gold question mark it will show you where one piece goes. Get too many hits and you don’t earn stars.

45 free tangram puzzles to work on. A little difficult because the pieces need to placed in the exact spot. The only way to know the pieces don't fit is to see an icon in the top left corner of the work area. When the pieces are correctly placed the icon disappears. The other skill needed is to see if the piece fits. This gives you the option to flip the parallelogram. Easy for most players but for a few... an added variable that might stump some of us.

The app will give you a hint if you ask for it. A shadow of the correct piece will appears.

This uses the original basic shapes of a tangram. Tap the shape you want to use then you might have to turn the shape into the correct position before placing it. Sometimes after placing all the pieces it does not indicate success, you need to hear a pop to indicate correct placement.
