Zome Geometry: Hands-on Learning with Zome Models
This book is a guide to exploration and education with Zome Advanced Math Kit and provides more than 60 easy to follow activities and over 150 explorations into the geometry of nature inherent in the Zome System.
Mathematicians such as Roger Penrose of Oxford University and John Conway of Princeton University used Zometool to model complex geometric forms.
Steve Baer was fascinated with the dome geometry introduced by architect R. Buckminster Fuller. After seeing what his wife constructed with a child’s toy while they lived in Zurich, Baer invented Zometoy which was demonstrated at the New York Toy Fair in 1971 with plastic ball joints and wooden dowel struts. One of the Waldorf School’s projects in 1985 involved obtaining a large Zometoy kit and using it to acquaint students with the icosahedral system in space.
Marc Pelletier and Paul Hildebrandt developed an ingenious design for a connector ball, learned injection molding, and with Master machinist Bob Nickerson created the most complicated plastic injection mold ever designed.
