Math can be fun, of course it can. If you use engaging teaching methods, children will start to be interested in a really exciting subject. In a sensory way, touching and manipulating the pieces, we will work on the name of the shapes and the name of the colors, in addition to developing logical reasoning and imagination, spatial intelligence and the understanding of notions such as different shapes.
The main idea is to roll the three dice (geometric shape, color and pattern), find the corresponding pieces and assemble the figure that meets the premises that they indicate. There is only one possible result for each combination. It is an evolutionary game in which we can define the degree of difficulty according to the children's abilities.
The set consists of 21 pieces, 6 geometric shapes (square, circle, oval, triangle, hexagon and star), 6 colored rings (red, yellow, blue, orange, purple and green), 6 circles with 6 different types of patterns or lines (painted on both sides) and 3 dice, one for the 6 colors, another for the 6 geometric shapes and another for the 6 types of lines.
Some game proposals
Proposal 1: Place all the pieces on a surface and roll the three dice. We have one die for the geometric shapes, another for the colors, and another for the patterns. We have to find the corresponding pieces and assemble the figure that meets the premises that they indicate. Initially we can start by throwing only a single die and later complicate it with the rest.
Proposal 2: We can select any shape with its type of plot and color or offer it to the child to use as a template or guide to be able to draw it on paper and later color them and recreate the corresponding lines.
Proposal 3: Of a greater degree of difficulty and for several participants. One of the participants rolls the dice and hides them. The rest of the participants, in turns, will try to guess and recreate the correct combination. The person who knows the combination will indicate the number of hits or misses (from 1 to 3) Mastermind type.
