Tangram is the 13th major release and 10th studio album by the electronic music group Tangerine Dream. It became their fifth biggest selling album, reaching #36 in the British Top 40, and spending 5 weeks on the chart.

At a turning point between two eras, Tangram contains fond glimpses back at the "classic long-form sequencer" period and also contains foreshadows of the "new age melodic short track" period to come. It introduced new member Johannes Schmoelling, re-establishing the band as a keyboard trio.

Each set contains multiple movements, some rhythmic, some atmospheric. An early live set in East Berlin (recorded in January 1980 and documented in Tangerine Dream's Quichotte, later retitled Pergamon) contains passages similar to Tangram.
