Yenka Mathematics lets you experiment easily with 3D mathematical models, to learn about statistics, probability, geometry and coordinates.
It can be used as a flexible demonstration tool - for example, on a whiteboard. Alternatively, students can use Yenka themselves, to learn by experimenting in Yenka's 3D world.
There's a wide range of ready-made lessons and activities that you can use in your lessons, and a set of training videos to help you get started.
And teachers and students can all use the full version of Yenka Mathematics at home.
What does Yenka Mathematics cover?
Investigate the relationships between data, graphs and statistics in a colourful environment;
Flip coins and roll dice to study probability trees and outcomes;
Experiment with 3D geometry, choosing from a range of ready-made shapes or nets; and resize, measure or rotate them;
Yenka Mathematics - Statistics & Probability
Yenka Mathematics' probability and statistics tools offer a colorful way to learn about the subject by experimenting and interacting with models.
Create and import data - Yenka generates datasets or classic distributions for you, or you can import your own.
Use the line-up to model your class, seeing the effects of changing characteristics like age, shoe size and height.
Investigate statistical measures - click a measure (like mean, or a quartile) and it's highlighted across your graphs.
With charts, tables and statistics interlinked, it's much easier to understand how they are related.
Easy-to-use graphs - add as many graphs as you want; they link automatically to your data, and update as you work.
Use stem and leaf diagrams, frequency and cumulative frequency polygons, histograms, bar or pie charts to show how your data is distributed.
Scatter graphs let you check correlations, interpolate or extrapolate, while box plots show the five-number summaries.
Probability games - flip coins, roll dice or draw numbered balls from a lottery machine. Each has its own probability tree, which - along with the graphs - updates live as you run the experiment.
Study multiple events: roll two dice or flip three coins, and follow the tree diagram to see the probability for each combined outcome.
Yenka Mathematics - 3D Shapes
Yenka 3D Shapes offers a collection of engaging lessons which teach about 2D and 3D geometry, along with a powerful modelling tool so you can modify them - or even create your own lessons from scratch.
To try it out yourself, you can get a trial copy to use at school.
Experiment with 3D geometry - drag ready-made shapes or nets onto the screen, then resize or rotate them by dragging. Yenka offers a full library of 3D shapes, ready for you to use.
Complete control over your model - change the 3D view, or the colours and textures of your shapes. Snap measurements onto them to read lengths, areas and combined volumes.
Design 3D nets, and fold them - snap shapes like squares and triangles together: joined edges become hinges, and you can fold them by dragging corners.
A range of ready-made nets help you get started, or you can unfold 3D shapes into their nets.
Create your own activities - add questions, instructions or text to your models.
View plans and elevations - pan, zoom and rotate your model to show a plan or elevations - in either a perspective or an isometric view.
Yenka Mathematics - Coordinates
Yenka Mathematics' modelling tools make it straightforward to investigate 2D and 3D coordinates. Even better, you can use this section of Yenka Mathematics free in school as well as at home.
Coordinate Games - either place a point, given its coordinates, or enter the coordinates of points on the screen.
Yenka will let you know if you've got it right, and then automatically generate a new game for you to play.
Create your own games - choose how the axes are set up - 2D or 3D, one quadrant or 4, units and scales, and so on - and add 3D objects, like those from Google's Sketchup Warehouse.
Work in full 3D - add a third axis to learn about coordinates in 3D.
Drag a 3D shape onto the screen, and you can attach points to any of its vertices.
