Last week in maths you were given a tricky puzzle called The Egg of Columbus. I told you that the Egg of Columbus was a tangram puzzle and I was met with a sea of confused faces. Therefore your job is to research the following:
* What is a tangram?
* Where did they originate from? Give some brief history.
* An explanation of The Egg of Columbus puzzle
* What is the maths involved in this?
* A Reflection on how you went with the puzzle. Did you find all solutions without any clues?
I would also like you to research some online links for tangram games. I have already managed to find a couple of good ones, I wonder if you’ll find the same ones.
Lastly, you must also include some images with your post…. What do you think they should be of? Think carefully.
