Made up of magnetic rods, steel spheres and different shaped panels, this Swiss-made product is the symbol of the magnetic construction system that has brought worldwide recognition to the Geomag brand. Thanks to these simple components and the magic of magnetism, endless 3D structures can be created with total freedom of imagination and creativity. Constructing 2D and 3D shapesPerimeters and areas, doubling/halvingTriangles and quadrilateral shapesPyramids, quadrangles, triangles, octagons, hexagonsRepeating sequences and tessellationParallel and mirror linesSymmetry and rotational symmetryDistinguishing between straight and turning movements/recognizing 1/2 and 1/4 turnsVisualizing and describing shapes, movements and transformationsApplying numeracy skills to other areas of learningCollecting and recording data/analyzing and explaining results and proceduresSolving problems by breaking down into smaller tasks
By reinforcing the concepts of Euclidean geometry with 2D polygons, 3D forms and much more as they build concrete models and make real-life comparisons, students then enjoy elaborating their models in a creative, stimulating and productive classroom environment. This concrete approach to understanding abstract concepts gives students a head start. Contained in a plastic Gratnells SmartCase® for easy storage. 244 pieces + 80 cards.
