To make your 7-piece Tangram Puzzle, either make your own tangram pieces from scrap paper as shown in this video or use this diagram and carefully cut out the pieces.

Now use the pieces of your Tangram to make
• An isosceles triangle
• A rectangle
• A parallelogram
• An isosceles trapezium
• A pentagon

For a bigger challenge: in a convex polygon all the interior angles are less than 180 degrees. Altogether 13 convex polygons can be made, each one using all 7 tangram pieces. How many can you make?
