A pentomino is a polygon in the plane made of 5 equal-sized squares connected edge-to-edge. Pentomino puzzles require the learner to assemble the set into a larger given shape without overlaps. Some examples are arranging the set of pentominoes to form rectangles of dimensions 12 by 5, 10 by 6, 15 by 4, 20 by 6.
