Building Set: K'Nex Elementary Math and Geometry Kit
The K'NEX® Education Elementary Math & Geometry set allows students to build, investigate and explore geometry concepts, vocabulary, and structures in a 2-D and 3-D world. The students live in a 3-D world, so it makes sense for them to connect with geometry on a 3-D level. K'NEX® allows them do just that!
The teacher's guide, designed as a resource, provides a glossary of key terms and definitions and includes Vocabulary Card masters to support instruction and understanding. The activities are standards based and designed around best practices in mathematics instruction. They build upon one another as they lead students towards a greater understanding of mathematics and geometric concepts.
Set includes 142 K'NEX® parts – enough to build 38 K'NEX® Math models. Support 3-4 students working as a team. Grades 1 - 3. Building instructions and teacher's guide aligned to national standards and Common Core Mathematics included. Packaged in a strong storage tray with snap-on lid.

ITunes App: Symmetry School: Learning Geometry
Geometry, the mathematics of shape and space, is a fun and practical way to introduce mathematical thinking, and Symmetry School encourages learners to use their intuition and imagination to explore symmetrical puzzles. Through gameplay, learners are aided in developing an essential foundation in spatial reasoning, problem solving and visualization.
• Learn to recognize reflective and rotational symmetry.
• Use an understanding of reflective symmetry to complete the missing half of a pattern.
• Use an understanding of rotational symmetry to predict and describe the results of rotating patterns.
• Recognize simple spatial patterns and relationships and make predictions about them.
• Develop a foundation for understanding symmetry at later levels.
• Solve problems and learn to work systematically.
• Develop fine motor skills.
• Have fun and learn!

ITunes App: My Geometric Universe
Your child can use the pencil, ruler, compass and set square to draw lots of different geometric shapes! The shapes can then be cut out and used to build real objects! Once these objects have been created, they can be placed in any of the three magical universes: The Kid's Room, Ancient Egypt or the Middle Ages.
Chocolapps apps promote your child's development because they help to improve observation and concentration skills, and give your child a sense of independence.
