The Daily Tangram

Today's Daily Tangram

What is the Daily Tangram?

The Daily Tangram is a fun, free activity. Each Daily Tangram provides a silhoutted shape to challenge your tangramming skills. Beside the image is a Tangram Grid on which you should draw the shape. Each shape can be drawn with the traditional 7 tans of the ancient Chinese tangram puzzle.

Each Daily Tangram also includes the solution to the previous Daily Tangram.

The Daily Tangrams are designed for both those who are fluent with tangrams, and those who have never heard of them before. If you are new to tangrams, you would probably do well to read the complete Daily Tangram: Hints page. There's also a link to it below.

How Fast Can You Tangram?

Typically, you should be able to complete the Daily Tangram in less than five minutes. Expert level would be in under two. If you can complete it in less than a minute, then you must be some sort of uber tangram genius, especially if you're drawing it, rather than manipulating physical tans.

Tan Identifications

For those already familiar with the Daily Tangram Hints, here are the Tan Identifications. The 7 tans are identified as "T1" through "T7," for "Tan 1" through "Tan 7." The corners of each tan are identified as "C1" through "C3" or "C4," depending on the Tan. These stand for "Corner 1" through "Corner 3" or "Corner 4". The 7 tans are numbered from left to right. The corners are numbered from left to right progressing clockwise through the corners.

Print-and-Cut Tangram

This print-and-cut tangram was designed for the Daily Tangram for those who want to cut it out and manipulate physical tans, rather than draw them. Or, the Daily Tangrammer can use these to experiment with before committing to put pen to paper. Either way, enjoy stretching your mind as you challenge your brain.
