    Comments about Learning Resources Geometry Shape - 16 in each:

    I added one to my own Montessori classroom. I also took eight to Guatemala where I train Montessori teachers. Big hit! The geometric fold-outs pair well with geometric solids because the student can see and feel all the plane figures that form each solid. This a powerful and sturdy learning tool.

    Comments about Learning Resources Geometry Shape - 16 in each:

    The nets need to be designed to open on the same side that the 3-D model opens. I used this with my students to create 3-D playdoe models of shapes. They sliced the shapes to discover the shape of faces created by the various slices made; vertical to base, horizontal to base. Several of the 3-D clear shapes cracked on corners as students attempted to place the filled nets back into the shape. This occurred only with shapes where the net didn't open on the side with the 3-D model, pyramids. If both open on the same side, students easily filled the shape and used the net to help pull the playdoe shape from the 3-D clear model.I look forward to any improvement you can make for this manipulative to be more sucessful in my classroom.

      I am a dyslexic trained teacher/tutor and work with children who largely need visual stimulus. I find shape my own weakest link in maths and have learned myself.

        I use this kit yearly to help my middle school students understand volume and surface area. They really like the colorful shapes and like to use them during tests.

        Folding Geometric Shapes

        This product is good, kids can really see how the nets fold up to become 3D shapes. I also use it to teach surface area and volume.
        My only complaint is that the way they designed the net of the cylinder, rectangular prism, hexagonal prism, and the cube make my students giggle and get off task every time.

        Cartridge Comparison Guide
        • Cartridge Types
        • Ink & Toner Basics
        • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
        Cartridge Type
        Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
        Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
        Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
        Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
        What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
        Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
        Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
        Material Liquid ink Dry powder
        How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
        Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
        Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
        Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
        Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
