Mini Trigonos 550 stimulates the curiosity, creativity and concentration of children and adults alike.
The game involves joining sticks of 5 lengths with 2 different kinds of blocks to create straight sections and 45, 90, and 135 degree angles in different directions.
Players work with flat shapes, parallels and perpendiculars, regularity, symmetries, geometric shapes (squares, rectangles, triangles, rhombuses and octagons), fractions, distances, and mathematical calculations…all while having fun! Mini Trigonos 550 is designed to be shared cooperatively within a group, which encourages communication, negotiation, planning and reasoning while individually applying imaginative and abstract thinking to build huts, ships, bridges, castles, forts, and trees.
Whether played individually or in a group, skills acquired include the basics of geometry, physics and technology. As children progress through various challenges, they will be able to visualise the square, cube or square root of a number, and even check the accuracy of Pythagoras’ theorem!
