#3DxMathematics – Seesaw Maths by Gyrobot #3DThursday #3DPrinting
The team at Gyrobot created this teaching aid to help teach basic arithmetic/physics concepts: Thingiverse Thing 182549. This type of “math manipulative” is one way that teachers are exploring using 3D printers to physically demonstrate math and science concepts to young students:
A hands on teaching aid which helps pupils understand addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Does not give you the answer, but tells you if you are correct via a balanced seesaw.
Also helpful in science, understanding leverage, fulcrums, moments and gravity.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
