play in 2 dimensions only? With the Pangram you'll discover
the pleasure of an additional dimension in the game. The Pangram is
easy to make (see drawings above), the ideal size of the game
is 10 cm3. You'll find below some solids to match
with all 7 pieces of the puzzle. Try to invent another tridimensional
figure to match by combining the puzzle pieces and send us
your best ideas!
this puzzle the classic Tangram pattern is merged with a 4x4
checkerboard. This gives seven checkered pieces; the pieces
are one-sided. The object is to assemble different regularly
checkered shapes. Some patterns possible to create with this
set are shown below. How can they be assembled? Keep in mind
that pieces are one-sided, and they can be rotated, but not
flipped over or overlapped. The fact that pieces are patterned
and one-sided add to the Tangramboard challenges and the solving
process a totally new logic.
Some shapes assembled using all the seven pieces of the Tangramboard.
over the world you may find a lot of Tangram variants. Here
below is a collection of 4 Tangram-like puzzles: Regulus, Cocogram, Pythagoras,
and Chie No-Ita. If you know another interesting variant/version
of the Tangram puzzle, please contact
Tangram-like puzzle below, called after the German mathematician Georg
Brügner, is composed of three similar right-angled
triangles that form a rectangle. The proportion of the sides
of this rectangle is calculated in such a manner that the number
of convex figures which can be put together with the puzzle
pieces is maximal.
fact, it is possible to form with this three-piece puzzle exactly
16 different convex polygons: 2 rectangles, 2 triangles, 2
parallelograms, 3 trapezoïds, 2 deltoïds, 1 quadrilateral,
and 4 pentagons (see below).
