Class Tech Tips: Shapes – 3D Geometry Learning

Shapes – 3D Geometry Learning is a great iOS app that will help students understand geometry. Kids can learn and explore different types of three dimensional solids including prisms, pyramids, Platonic solids and solids of revolution. Users can pick and choose from up to 27 unique shapes and unfold them into different net combinations.

This iPad and iPhone app lets kids explore transparent surfaces and use different colors to interact with each shape. They can highlight the vertices and edges of a prism or color selected elements of a pyramid. Shapes – 3D Geometry Learning is easy to navigate and uses simple gesture control to zoom and rotate shapes in any direction. This app was designed to support the development of children’s spatial imagination and teach them appropriate geometry terminology, giving teachers an opportunity to access a full set of virtual tools within one app..
