Cosmic Geometry Provides a Strong Foundation for
Cosmic Geometry teaches you the concepts and
problem-solving skills you need to master geometry and build math confidence!
Polyhedral (many-sided) characters such as Dodeca, Hexa and Icosa are your
guides on this awesome exploration of Planet Geometry. You'll learn about
attributes of shapes and solids, constructions and transformations, 2D and 3D
coordinates and the relationships between length, perimeter, area and volume
and much more. Hundreds of problems encourage you to learn and use concepts
that provide a solid foundation for success in geometry and for lasting
learning. We're so sure of this, we fully guarantee your satisfaction!
In Cosmic Geometry, You'll Master These Important 7th, 8th & 9th Grade
- Problem Solving & Reasoning
- Attributes of Shapes & Solids

Donna Stanger, a teacher for 20 years, shares thoughts about the role you can
play in helping your child successfully learn math.
Unique Grow Slide Feature! Mighty Math's unique Grow Slide feature
automatically records your child's progress and adjusts to guide your child's
learning. The activities in Calculating Crew offer dozens of math topics and
thousands of problems. Grow Slides help your child get the full benefit of the
four years of math learning in every activity. As your child learns and
progresses, the Grow Slides advance, offering more challenging problems. Your
or your child can also set the difficulty of each activity or choose a specific
topic related to schoolwork.
Graduate from the Geometry Academy.
Enroll at the Geometry Academy to learn about geometry terminology and
famous mathematicians and to experiment with "hands-on" geometric models. Hexa,
the hexahedron and chief reference librarian for Planet Geometry, is your
Explore Geometric Relationships in a 3D Maze.
Enter Amazing Angles and help Dodeca, the dodecahedron, navigate the 3D
labyrinth he calls home. Unlock secret rooms and discover new paths by solving
for the relationships between length, angle, perimeter, area, dimension,
surface area and volume. Every path leads to new questions and every question
leads deeper into the maze.
Geometry Goes to the Movies.
You're the director in GeoMovies! Tetra, the tetrahedron, provides tools you
use to solve problems and build intricate geometric constructions that you view
as movies. "Scene" and "Ideas" buttons provide starting points for creative
Sizzling Symmetrical Patterns Spring to Life.
Choose a shape. Now pull it, stretch it and fill it with color or art in an
interlocking, symmetrical pattern. You've made a tessellation! At the
Tessellation Creation Station, you develop artistic creativity while exploring
shapes, patterns and symmetry.
Robots Dance Through Geometric
Use translations (slides), rotations (turns) and reflections (flips) to
assemble a robot on a 2D coordinate grid in the Robot Studio with Octa, the
octahedron. Then make your robot dance in a 3D space. Predict and test
solutions, search for patterns and build spatial awareness as you direct and
analyze your robot's moves.
