"Tangrams are a great manipulative to use in any math class. They help students develop mathematical concepts like spatial awareness, fractions, area and perimeter. They cater to several learning styles too. Since they are interesting and hands-on, students love to work with them and find new shapes and designs." - Amy, Education Product Development Specialist for Oriental Trading Company
