Magformers KS1/KS2 Classroom Set
This 228-piece Magformers magnetic construction set is designed for full class lessons when exploring and explaining straight-edged shapes, 2D nets and their corresponding 3D solid structures.
The shapes are also used to teach symmetry, tessellation, patterns, division and other principles in Key Stage One and Key Stage Two environments.
The set contains 60 triangles, 48 squares, 24 isosceles triangles, 24 right-angled triangles, 12 trapezoids, 12 diamonds, 24 hexagons, 24 pentagons and includes a handy storage container.
Numerous nets and solids which can be made from this set include: tetrahedrons, cuboids, prims, antiprisms, polyhedra, dodecahedrons, Platonic Solids, Archimedean Solids.
The large number of pieces also make it ideal for illustrating and explaining mathematical terms like faces, edges, vertices, angles, regular and semi-regular solids, truncating, polygons, polygrams.
It comes with a stackable Really Useful Box storage container so pieces can be quickly and easily packed away at the end of a lesson.
- Makes Platonic and Archimedean Solids, prisms, and common polyhedra
- Teaches 2D net to 3D correlation for a multitude of shapes
- Helps children explore edges, angles, tesselation, patterns, symmetry, 2D nets and 3D modelling
