Description / Tangrams Kit
Teach your kids important geometric concepts with the interactive tangrams kit.
Tangrams are colourful geometric pieces that can form unique designs by placing only 7 pieces together. These are great practical tools for learning about symmetry, geometry, sequencing, patterns, and creating diagrams. This kit includes a range of materials that will encourage your student’s creativity, interest in design, and ability to work as a team to reach results.
Useful written resources
This kit comes with the Toying with Tangrams book by Dr Paul Swan which includes different ways to use the multifunctional tangrams. Furthermore, this resource delves into geometric principles to connect practical learning with mathematical theory.
The brightly coloured puzzle cards display A4 images with black spaces where pieces are missing. Students can work independently or in groups to put the images back together using the tangram pieces.
Teachers can use the tangrams kit as a demonstrational device during lessons by holding up the cards and asking students to arrange the missing pieces on their desks. The Toying with Tangrams book can be read aloud as instructions to follow, or students can pass around these materials to work independently, in pairs, or a group. Tangrams can also serve as a great stand-in for counters during lessons on addition, subtraction, and counting.
