This class set contains everything you need to teach 2D and 3D shapes to primary school children. This vast set contains 11 different shapes with a total of 118 pieces. It includes basic shapes such as squares, rectangles and 3 types of triangles as well as more complicated shapes such as cylinders & cones. The magnetic connections mean that this resource is really easy to put together and pull apart again. Children can start with simple 2D shapes and 2D tessellations and nets before moving onto more complicated 3D shapes. Make shapes such as a tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, icosahedron and dodecahedron to help learn platonic solids. You can also make a wide variety of different prisms, anti-prisms and pyramids. Once the basic shapes have been mastered, children can make spheres, cylinders and cones as well as cross sections of them. This is truly the most comprehensive geometry set a teacher will use for demonstrating the full range of geometric shapes that primary school children need to learn. This 118 piece set contains: 4 Hexagons, 12 Isosceles Triangles, 20 Equilateral Triangles, 12 Right Angle Triangles, 20 Squares, 10 Rectangles, 12 Pentagons, 8 Spheres, 12 Quadrants, 4 Cones, 4 Cylinders. Length of shortest side is 6cm. Age: 5+.
