We’ve designed this kit to enable an engaging back and forth for almost every level of child. Young children can use the kit to explore basic shapes and similarity. Elementary-school children can engage in solving the central puzzle of the Pythagorean theorem - forming squares that represent the squares of the hypotenuse and shorter sides. Middle-school students can use the puzzle to work out three algebraic proofs of the Pythagorean theorem, including the proof put forward by President James A. Garfield. High-school students can use the kit to explore units of measure and reason out Einstein’s proof of the Pythagorean theorem. Here we provide suggestions on how to engage with each of these age-groups! Made from 3/4" pine, this kit is sourced and assembled entirely in the United States.
