Math Models

Integrate your current math lessons with Tinkercad skills! Visualizing math concepts helps students determine if an answer “makes sense”.

Suggested Examples

  • Make chocolate bar fractions and color-coordinate their answers
  • Illustrate word problems (such as area, surface area, and volume) for visual guides
  • Draw triangles to review the Pythagorean theorem and various trig/pre-calc problems
  • Discuss ratios and proportions while sizing objects
  • Create 3D geometrical shapes and polygons from 2D ones
  • Manipulate shapes by clicking and dragging for plots
  • “Bake” pie chart pies!
  • Solve equations and inequalities by moving shapes around
  • …and more!
