        I am a dyslexic trained teacher/tutor and work with children who largely need visual stimulus. I find shape my own weakest link in maths and have learned myself.

          I use this kit yearly to help my middle school students understand volume and surface area. They really like the colorful shapes and like to use them during tests.

          Folding Geometric Shapes

          By Middle School Math Teacher

          from Dallas, TX

          About Me Teacher

          Verified Reviewer

          Pros

          • Durable
          • Educational

          Cons

          • Poor Design

          Best Uses

          • Older Children

          Comments about The Original Folding Geometric Shapes™:

          This product is good, kids can really see how the nets fold up to become 3D shapes. I also use it to teach surface area and volume.
          My only complaint is that the way they designed the net of the cylinder, rectangular prism, hexagonal prism, and the cube make my students giggle and get off task every time.
