Tactile Tangrams is a puzzle designed to be accessible for people who are blind or have low vision. The Tactile Tangrams Kit consists of seven pieces in three different shapes: triangle (2 large, 1 medium, 2 small) square and parallelogram. Users can develop and reinforce many educational and recreational skills including spatial reasoning, shape recognition, size comparison, pattern replication, and independent problem solving. Many geometry concepts such as congruence, symmetry, sides and angles, fractions, measurement, area and perimeter, rotation/reflection, and concave/convex shapes are also reinforced.

The following skills, especially important for tactile and low vision readers, are also addressed:

  • Visual/tactile discrimination
