ZomeTools are a fantastic Geometry Education system. Made of precision molded ABS plastic, the ZomeTools Geometry Sets are versatile manipulative tools for problem solving and hands-on exploration of math, geometry and science concepts for first graders through grad students. Color and shape coded parts integrate the concepts of shape, number and vector into one coherent geometry system. The result is the best educational geometry construction system on the market. Zome System / ZomeTools components are designed to incorporate the Fibonacci sequence and the Golden Proportion - the very same proportions that govern the growth of cells, crystals and other natural forms. The geometry of each Zome connector node provides 62 buildable directions in space. This allows for thousands of geometrical Zome structures that can't be built in any other system.
With the help of Zometools you can continue to explore: Why so many everyday items like balls, pizzas, and can lids are round. The hows and whys of the development of our number system by the ancient Greeks. Why geometric shapes show up so often in art, science and board games. What properties attributed to the spiral make it the most widespread shape in nature, from embryos and hair curls to hurricanes and galaxies. How the human body shares the design of a corn plant and the solar system. How a snowflake is like Stonehenge, and a beehive like a calendar. How our ten fingers hold the secrets of both a lobster and a cathedral. Zometools provide an introduction to the geometric code of nature and the universe.
