Learn, teach and explore different types of 3D solids and help students understand geometry in a pleasant way.

'Shapes' uses the power of mobile devices to enhance teacher capabilities and provide possibilities to show things that cannot be shown with physical tools. It can help to create interest and enthusiasm in school mathematics classes at all levels.

The app was verified and approved by the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at Adam Mickiewicz University of Poznan. It was specifically prepared to support the teacher in the classroom, but can also be used as a tool for self-study. From now on there is a save and print option available for each net so that the kids can explore solids outside the app and improve their manual skills as well.

Discover a fascinating world of solids like prisms, pyramids, solids of revolution and Platonic solids. Start from the simplest and gradually explore the most complex ones. Engage your students with a new Nets Creator mode. Let them build solids from scratch and discover hundreds of unique net combinations.

Customer Reviews



I think this is great in that I have been lookin for a shapes app that goes beyond the 2 dimensional. I would suggest a voice option that says the name of the shape out loud. I have a 3 year old who is very interested and food at manipulating shapes but can't read words larger than 4 letters yet and it would help to reinforce what I teach him. Thanks!

Beautiful application!


This application will go a long way in helping elementary and middle school students understand the differences between various 3D figures. The conceptual understanding will certainly enhance student understanding of surface area as well. Beautiful graphics. Intuitive interface. Nice work!

Blew my mind!

This is an outstanding app! I can't wait to use this with my students tomorrow. This app allows you to do things with shapes I have never seen outside of science fiction movies. I am sharing this app with every teacher in my district!
