Dive into geometry with the Folding Geometric Shapes set, designed to make complex concepts like symmetry, perimeter, area, surface area, and volume tangible for young minds. Each three-inch geometric shape is capable of folding flat, demystifying the relationship between three-dimensional objects and their two-dimensional properties.
In the set, students find:
- A cylinder, square pyramid, cube, and more, all transparent for easy volume viewing.
- Corresponding fold-up net inserts that fit inside each transparent shape to provide a clear understanding of how 2D shapes form 3D structures.
- 16 pieces in total, including 8 transparent and 8 foldable shapes.
Students will enhance their ability to identify, analyze, compare, and compose 3D shapes. This toolkit takes the abstract nature of geometry and makes it accessible and enjoyable.
Moreover, all shapes have rounded edges and corners for safety during handling. Measuring 3 inches in height, they’re the perfect size for small hands to manipulate and explore.
Whether used in a classroom setting or at home, the Folding Geometric Shapes set is a versatile resource that brings math into the real world, encouraging exploration and discovery.
