Puzzle Week, Day 3: Tangrams

The rules for tangram puzzles are very simple. You are given a shadow and seven pieces. The goal is to form the shadow's shape using the whole set of pieces. The pieces look like this:

Like jigsaw puzzles, tangrams help a lot with pattern recognition. Plus, they are very fun to play against friends, trying to see who can solve them first. They usually don't take too long, so if you want just a quick, short challenge, be sure to check tangrams out!
