 What's so special about The Small T

The Small T is a modern tangram puzzle created by a Vietnamese. Tangram has a history of nearly 1000 years, but almost all designs have seven pieces or more, so it's incredibly confusing. Almost 120 years ago, there was a tangram named T puzzle with four polygonal, and since then, no other 4-pieces tangram appeared.

Although mathematicians have tried to create versions with fewer polygons for the past 120 years, but they only achieved to modify the design of the T puzzle. A famous American mathematician named Martin Gardner also contributed to the editing of the T puzzle, saying, ""I know of no polygon-dissection puzzle with as few pieces that is so intractable." Unfortunately, Martin Gardner passed away in 2010, so he did not see The Small T appear.

The Small T is proud to be the first 3-pieces tangram with more than 20 puzzle shapes to be solved.
