In this post we write about making of geometric shapes formulas model making – maths tlm working model

Creating a geometric shapes formulas model using cardboard and color paper is a great way to visualize and understand the formulas for different shapes.

Let’s build a simple model that represents various geometric shapes with their corresponding formulas.

Materials needed:

Cardboard (for the base and structures)

Color paper (for representing different shapes and formulas)

Scissors

Glue or double-sided tape

Marker pens or sketch pens

Shapes and their corresponding formulas to include in the model:

Square:

Formula: Area = side × side

Formula: Perimeter = 4 × side

Rectangle:

Formula: Area = length × width

Formula: Perimeter = 2 × (length + width)

Circle:

Formula: Area = π × radius^2

Formula: Circumference = 2 × π × radius

Triangle:

Formula: Area = (base × height) / 2

Formula: Perimeter = side1 + side2 + side3

Parallelogram:

Formula: Area = base × height

Formula: Perimeter = 2 × (side1 + side2)

Step-by-step instructions:

Base:

Cut a large rectangular or square piece of cardboard to serve as the base for the model.

Shapes Representation:

Use color paper to create representations of each geometric shape (square, rectangle, circle, triangle, parallelogram).

Cut out shapes from color paper based on their respective formulas.

Labeling:

Write the name of each shape on the color paper representing it.

Write the formulas for area and perimeter (or circumference) next to each shape.

Placement on the Base:

Arrange the shapes with their formulas neatly on the base, leaving enough space between them.

Decorating the Model:

Use markers or color paper to decorate the model and add more details to make it visually appealing.

Now, you have a geometric shapes formulas model using cardboard and color paper. This model visually represents various geometric shapes along with their corresponding area and perimeter (circumference) formulas.
