Workshop and Adventureland Mathematics middle schools, Year 5/6/7
Content Students will examine interactively and have a closer look on selected geometric solids and shapes such as platonic solids, spheres and knots. The innovative construction system ZOMETOOL enables with colour- and shape-coded sticks and connection balls the construction of geometric solids. Thereby mathematical proportions and symmetries are demonstrated and structures in space explored in a playful way.
Procedure: Does every solid have corners, edges and areas? What about the appearance when turning and rotating the solid? The construction system ZOMETOOL enables the construction of geometric solids while experiencing mathematical proportions through play. Teams develop objects and paper works.
Hints for preparation: Teamwork in the MACHwerk. The research workshop for everyone, 45min; afterwards visit to the Adventureland Mathematics

The Adventureland Mathematics is part of a municipal technology museum: Technische Sammlungen Dresden.
The museum can easily be reached by car as well as by public transport, i.e., bus and tram. For the latter, the tram lines 4 and 10 and the bus line 61 are suitable. For further information you may want to consult the website of Dresden's public transportation DVB (currenly in German only). The bus and tram stops closest to the venue are named Pohlandplatz, Technische Sammlungen.
