This is why children can’t develop their “shape brain,” that is a senses to work out shapes. The subject "shape" frequently appear in the entrance examination both to junior high and high schools. Therefore, "Tamanishiki Ultimate Shapes" was developed for improving shapes brains of children. This material is internationally gaining attention and has been used in national schools and prestigious private schools in India.

The Most Required Ability to Solve Shape Problems

Having "a creative mind" helps to visualize shapes in a head

When studying for the entrance exam either for junior high school or high school, students often struggle with "shape" problems. What's common among those who feel that they are not good at shapes is that they can't visualize shapes in their head. The ability most needed to solve problems on shape is "creative mind". Without it, students have difficulty visualizing a three-dimensional image of a shape by looking at a plane surface figure or net.

Easy to understand because it moves! Solid shapes are animated in our video materials

Students will start to intuitively tell the answers by learning with our videos where solid shape, revolving shape and net are animated. “Creative Minds” are developed by watching videos of a plane shape transforming into a solid shape or blocks getting stacked on each other in the animations.

POINT 02

Visualizing shapes repeatedly helps to solve shape problems. Graded textbooks are optimised according to proficiency

The best suitable grade of our textbooks will be chosen from 10 grades according to the student's proficiency. The spiral method is adopted where contents get more difficult as students progress, so they can build up their skills naturally and they will like to learn the subject in the end.

Training for visualizing figures

It is not difficult to visualize a figure. Because the world we live in is all made of 3D. If students consciously visualize figures from a young age, they will naturally develop geometric cognition. Even if they haven't learned it in school, you can encourage your child to become interested in 3D shapes at home. For example, a box of Toblerone chocolates. You can easily show this to your child and say, "This shape is called a triangular prism. See how the bottom is triangle" It's also a good way to train their geometric cognition to imagine how the chocolate fits in the box.

It includes the concept of time and creativity. When you have good spatial awareness, you can manage time and creativity well.
