Excite future architects, scientists and engineers.
Made for children, used by Nobel Prize winners and renowned scientists.
Advanced Math Creator 4 Kit is just that - an advanced kit with astronomical potential. An illustrated, exploratory guide gets you started. Visual information makes sense. Simple instructions make the most out of Zome Tool. One quick skimming and you're captivated. The complicated becomes clear... you don't waste time... creativity races ahead...
Construct 65 different tetrahedra (3-D triangles). Build innovative bubble models (bubble recipe included). Expand your mind with polygons, 3-dimensional shapes, the power of 2-, 3- and 5-... the options are infinite!
Cuboctahedron and Rhombic Dodecahedron... what? Kids understand. You do too. Suddenly ancient Greek geometry is connected to quantum physics in a way even children can process.
1,188 parts. Yes, that is correct. 300 nodes (white balls), 888 struts (colorful connecting bars) AND an Learning Adventure DVD. The world of Zome is contained within this sturdy toolbox. Sectioned trays keep the colorful struts separate, containers keep the nodes from spilling everywhere, never loose a single piece.
Art and science at play.
NASA uses Zome Tool. Physics scientists do too. Teachers, college students, classrooms, home school, scientists, children, moms and dads... join the ever-expanding family of Zome Tool enthusiasts.

My rating of Zome Tool - Advanced Math Creator 4 Kit
Posted 12/19/2013 by MR
Purchased for use with fourth graders. The bent pieces confused them so I would probably buy the Creator set again instead of this one. I showed them how to pull the pieces out straight but three pieces ended up with the end broken off because they angled the piece down to remove it. Very good tool to use however.
My son is still very young to play with this toy. So I have to update this review once he starts playing with it. But I love this toy. I wish I had toys like this when I was learning math. After spending 2 years as Math major I really struggled with understanding concepts. Tools like this would have helped me tremendously. Definitely worth buying it for the kids. I wish fatbraintoys also sell Zome Geometry book.

I used this with middle school students after watching the movie "Flatland 3-D". An activity was included with the purchase of the novie that asked students to find the number of vertices, edges, etc, to study some laws, and to create some rules for each. The Zome Tool peices were perfect for this. The connecting balls (spheres) were perfect for counting the vertices and the struts reperesented the edges. The students loved building with the tools and they served an educational purpose also. My job is to create activities to use in an outreach setting with middle school mathematics students and teachers.
