Origins of Tangrams:
A long time ago in China, lived a man called Tan. Tan’s greatest possession was a fine ceramic tile. One day while cleaning his tile he tripped and the tile fell and broke into a range of geometric shapes. Tan spent the rest of his life trying to put the tile back together again. He was not successful, but he did succeed in creating many different geometric designs. Tan enjoyed creating the designs. Tan’s puzzles, later called Tangram, were passed on through generations and from country to country. Tangram origins are older than 2000 years but the earliest known printed reference to tangram appears in a Chinese book “only” 200 years ago.
