'Tangram' Puzzle 'Candle'
- stephenruby88, Zoltán Kovács
Tangrams, invented by the Chinese, are used to develop geometric thinking and spatial sense. Seven figures consisting of triangles, squares, and parallelograms are used to construct the given shape. Use all geometric figures below in order to recreate the candle shown. You can translate the figures by dragging the blue points or just the figures. You can rotate them by dragging the green points with the mouse. Click the little icon in the upper right corner in order to reset the applet and start over.
Credits: The GeoGebra Docu Team created the original version of this tangram. I downloaded the candle clipart from the Florida Center for Instructional Technology. A nice tangram animation can also be found at Monique's Morsink's YouTube channel.
