Magformers Maths KS1/KS2 Basic Pack + Storage
The Magformers KS1/KS2 Maths Classroom Pack is a 172-piece full class set with a strong focus on maths, especially geometry.
It consists straight-edged and curved magnetic shapes required to successfully cover essential Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 maths topics.
The set contains 24 triangles, 32 squares, 12 hexagons, 12 pentagons, 12 isosceles triangles, 12 diamonds, 12 trapezoids, 12 rectangles, 12 right-angled triangles, 8 quadrants, 8 cylinders (arches), 8 cones, 8 spheres.
In its simplest form for Year One and Year Two maths development, children can identify and describe the different properties of the 13 different single shapes. But it is also designed to allow them to progress their learning and build common 2D nets and 3D solid structures ranging from pyramids and cubes, to spheres and clyliders and more complex Platonic Solids and Archimedean Solids.
Numerous National Curriculum topics can be taught quickly and simply with this set to identify acute and obtuse angles, identify right angles, lines of symmetry, make and measure perimeters of shapes, compare and classify shapes based on size.
In Years 4 and Year 5, classes can use the set to distinguish between regular and irregular polygons and as a visual aid when calculating the area of parallelograms and triangles or calculating, estimating and comparing volume of cubes and cuboids.
It comes with a storage container so pieces can be quickly and easily packed away at the end of a lesson.
