Have you ever wondered how many edges do you need to create a dodecahedron? With this app, you can learn, teach, explore and play with a lot of various 3D solids

Discover a fascinating world of 3D shapes like prisms, pyramids, solids of revolution and Platonic solids. Start from the simplest and gradually explore the most complex ones. Build solids from scratch with a new Nets Creator mode and discover hundreds of unique net combinations.

Shapes use the power of mobile devices to enhance teacher capabilities and provide possibilities to show things that cannot be shown with physical tools. It can help to create interest and enthusiasm in school mathematics classes at all levels.

The app was verified and approved by the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at Adam Mickiewicz University of Poznan. It was specifically prepared to support the teacher in the classroom, but can also be used as a tool for self-study. From now on there is a save and print option available for each net so that the kids can explore solids outside the app and improve their manual skills as well.

'Shapes' features:

- Select 27 unique shapes
- Choose from a variety of prisms, pyramids, Platonic solids and solids of revolution
- Unfold shapes into different net combinations
- Learn about the number of faces, edges and vertices for each solid
- Build solids from scratch in Nets Creator mode
- Explore transparent surfaces mode
- Highlight the vertices and edges
- Color selected elements
- Use simple gesture control
- Rotate the shapes in any direction
- Zoom in and out by pinch and spread gestures
- Align to a basic position by double tap
- Save, print, cut and fold a chosen net
- Examine 3D shape in Augmented Reality! Place the solid on your desk without the need to print and fold them!

When will we know when it’s ready for Merge Cubes?

I’m anxiously awaiting for that!

Beautiful application!

This application will go a long way in helping elementary and middle school students understand the differences between various 3D figures. The conceptual understanding will certainly enhance student understanding of surface area as well. Beautiful graphics. Intuitive interface. Nice work!

I think this is great in that I have been lookin for a shapes app that goes beyond the 2 dimensional. I would suggest a voice option that says the name of the shape out loud. I have a 3 year old who is very interested and food at manipulating shapes but can't read words larger than 4 letters yet and it would help to reinforce what I teach him. Thanks!
