Book: Zome Geometry
A helpful book for all Zometool builders! More than 60 excercises, challenges and ideas brought together in 25 chapters. Expand your Zometool-Horizon with this hands-on learning book. Suitable for use in the classroom.
Written by mathematician George W. Hart and teacher Henri Picciotto this books combines mathematics with innovative and realizable teaching concepts.
These “Reptangles” turtles are building blocks for geometric constructions. They snap together and form the most amazing polyhedra. Two turtles can connect in more than 100 ways! Discover symmetry, rotations, and reflections. A full color booklet is included and gives more hints and guidance for more geometric exploration.
For everyone from 6 – 99!
Film: Clouds are not Spheres
Set in a world of only two dimensions inhabited by sentient geometrical shapes, the story follows Arthur Square and his ever-curious granddaughter Hex. When a mysterious visitor arrives from Spaceland, Arthur and Hex must come to terms with the truth of the third dimension, risking dire consequences from the evil Circles that have ruled Flatland for a thousand years.
Film: Hotel Hilbert
It seems like a normal day for Fiona Knight when she is on the look out for a hotel room for tonight. But when she enters “Infinit Hotel” her night gets anything but normal. First off, the hotel manager tells her that every room is taken – just to declare that there will be enough free rooms for every new guest in the same breath...
This animated feature film takes you on a ride into the world of discretization and its history. Nine entertaining chapters take you on a ride through the development of discrete geometry and its everyday applications.
Besides explaining these methods, “MESH” itself was created using modern computer graphic.
Film: The Colours of Infinity
Arthur C. Clarke takes us into the world of fractals. We learn about their discovery, their fascinating properties, and about the people who use them. Fractals have been discovered in the 1980s by Benoît Mandelbrot who is also interviewed in this movie.
Polygons in Gift Packaging
ITSPHUN in a great gift packaging: The ITSPHUN polygons can be transformed into various 3D shapes. The colorful pieces encourage builders to create their own shapes. The simple and clever design of ITSPHUN makes it easy to put the polygons togehter.
In this version, the dodecahedron packaging of these polygon pieces is also made from ITSPHUN-pieces.
Total number of pieces: 120
Papercraft Model: Set “Discrete Minimal Surfaces”
Papercraft Model: Set “Easy-Peasy”
Plastic Pattern Blocks
Wooden Pattern Blocks (250 pieces)
Zometool: Creator 1
This is the kit to get started with Zometool. The colored instructions explain the structural properties of different geometries. With this kit you can experience a multitude of geometrical solids and their relations on different levels of difficulty. Show your kids with this construction kit how manifold and exciting geometry can be.
