Download PolyMod Program
"In grades 5-8, the mathematics curriculum should study the geometry of one, two, and three dimensions…so that students can visualize and represent geometric figures with special attention to developing spatial sense."
The NCTM (1989) Standards for School MathematicsHow do you make a Dodecahedron out of paper and glue?
Why are there only 5 regular convex solids?
Have you verified Euler's formula (F+V-E=2) lately?
Do you wish you could add polyhedron and spatial activities to your classroom easily?
Do you want to have fun with your kids building 3-Dimensional paper models?
The program can be used by grades 1-12 or college geometry classes, as well as at home recreationally. The printed nets can be easily built by ages 7 and up.
PolyMod allows the direct physical manipulation of paper models, enhancing the learning process. Studies have shown that interactive learning is far more effective than simple lecturing or reading. This program allows the combining of both computer use and physical play/learning.
