When I was younger, I had an obsession with puzzles. I would spend hours at a time putting puzzles together or playing with tangrams online. So when there was an option to try Archimedes' stomachion as part of work for this class I was stoked. I was fairly confident this wouldn't be too difficult, but soon found out how wrong this assumption was. If you don't know what the stomachion is, its basically a rectangle that has been cut into 14 distinct pieces and the goal is to put it back together.
I spent hours working on this but ultimately was never able to complete it. To start out, I just randomly started placing some of the bigger tiles into the corners and trying to put the smaller ones around them. Obviously, this strategy didn't really work too well. Here was my best attempt just randomly placing the tiles anywhere.
