A set of 5 geometric prisms precut and scored from white cardstock. These are shipped flat and require assembly. Perfect for teaching mathematics and geometry. Great for teaching shape recognition and the importance of prisms and polyhedrons. They make an excellent mathematics related project out of coloring and constructing the prisms.
The 5 prisms included are:
- Triangular Prism
- Rectangular Prism
- Trapezoidal Prism
- Pentagonal Prism
- Hexagonal Prism
Each shape contains 0.25 inch (6 mm) long tabs to facilitate gluing the solid together. Typical school glues or all purpose glue works well. The shapes may be taped.
Approximate size of each shape ranges from about 1x1x1 inch (2.5x2.5x2.5 cm) for the smallest shapes up to about 3x3x3 inch (7.5x7.5x7.5 cm).
A prism consists of a polygon for a base. The top of the prism is the exact same shape as the base translated on only one axis. The number of faces on the prism is equal to the number of sides of the polygon base. Prisms are a subset of polyhedrons.
