Description: 27 painted wooden cubes in a box with lid. The constituent parts of the cube represent the factors of the equation : (a³+b³+c³), but the young child is not exposed to this complicated algebra, s/he is occupied in rebuilding the cube by recognizing color and shape. Explore color, texture, shape, form and space in two and three dimensions. Use language such as 'circle' or 'bigger' to describe the shape and size of solids and flat shapes. Talk about, recognize and recreate simple patterns.
