Magformers Pythagoras Set

£70.00

Magformers Pythagoras Set is a great educational aid. It contains major geometrical elements and 11 double-sided and colourful laminated activity sheets (2 x A1 size, 7 x A3 and 2 mixed sizes). This set is perfect for children starting to study geometry, solve angles and equations. Use the magnetic power of Magformers to create patterns, fit together shapes and solve questions. Once the problems have been solved in 2D, build up the shapes and learn in 3D. The problems cover Pythagora’s therorem: Bhaskara’s proof; Chinese Square proof; Pappus area’s thereom; area of similar triangles; area of triangles and parallelograms and a Pythagoras puzzle.

Note the unique box – it opens like a book and has a handy side compartment for the activity cards.
