A tatami tiling is a tiling of 1x1 squares and 1x2 rectangles such that no four tiles meet at any point.
Find a tatami tiling of a 5x5 square such that there are five 1x1 tiles, five horizontal 1x2 tiles, and five vertical 2x1 tiles.
sorry but I'm using my phone. Note the two squares touching.
I like this puzzle so much I'm making it with my schools 3D printer. Peices will have corners that exclude 4 at a corner and have ridges that force H or V.
I have an excuse. I'm in bed with the flu. My solution is the same as Charlie's. It's just a reflection.
