Tangrams are a an extremely versatile and very cheap manipulative that can be used to develop many different mathematics concepts. Unfortunately Tangrams are often just “toyed” with. This 48 page book shows how Tangrams may be used to develop deep knowledge of many geometric principles as well as some fractional understanding.
