Poleidoblocs Set - Set 54
Designed to enable children to go on to investigate the abstract mathematics underlying a structure, this set includes 54 colourful wooden blocks and a 20 page teacher’s guide stored in a wooden box. The set includes the following 3D shapes: cube, cuboid, cylinder, cone, square based pyramid and triangular prism. The blocks are interrelated by size, shape and volume. There are two sizes of cube: it takes eight of the smaller to make the larger. Slice the large red cube in half and half again, and you get the red triangular prism. Cut the large red cube into four slices, and you get the blue tiles. Or cut it into quarters a different way, and you get the small red cuboids. Join three of the blue tiles into a straight path, and you get the yellow tile, or just two of them, and you get the green tile. The blue cylinder fits just exactly on the red cuboid, and is the same height. And so on and so forth. Ideal for teaching properties of 3D shapes to KS1 and KS2 pupils.
