    If you see in the image, the scrambled pieces imported from PowerPoint, there is a square shape that makes them overlap whey trying to assemble them and form the big square (on top right).

    Hi @Jorge this is such a fun concept. You can use the shapes within the app to create some of these tangram shapes. To rotate shapes, you can use the "handles" at the side of each shape. I'll share a video with you for more info.

    Here are a few of my recommendations for you, @Jorge . https://www.loom.com/share/194f319b548d45cabeeabc51da34169b

    Love @hailey 's Loom! My mother was a teacher and LOVED Tangrams, and I'd done some tests with this a while ago, @Jorge - so adding my thoughts here as well in another Loom: https://www.loom.com/share/a52cea68da674268bb48ebe56ceddbc3

    Thanks for giving us something fun to think about on a Friday afternoon!

    Also - realize that we didn't address the Pentomino puzzle question, but I think it will be clear from my example about the trapezoid being built up from smaller shapes - that you can see how grouping and coloring squares together will get you any combination you'd need 😀

    Hey @Jorge!

    I am adding my little contribution here to what @marktippin and @hailey have already shared. Here you have a board with Tangram pieces imported in SVG format from Illustrator with the automatic tool "Image trace" (I used the image you had uploaded as an example).

    Please take a look at it and, please, use it if you like it. I think the main drawback in making Tangrams is that one can accidentally change the size of the pieces. But hey, maybe a new feature could be implemented by MURAL developers like being "lock-resize" - wink to @marktippin 😁

    Cool challenge!
