The physical Mathomat template

is supplied in a student storage wallet, but can also be kept inside a ring binder. This powerful drawing tool has all of the features of a technical drawing set (rulers, protractor, set squares and plenty of circles and ellipses to replace the need for a compass). Mathomat also contains many mathematically important shapes and scales

Keeping your Mathomat handy means that measurement and technical and creative drawing is always possible, in school for projects and classwork and in daily life. Many of our best customers are adults who have kept using the Mathomat they had from their school days. Mathomat is a useful tool to use in conjunction with computer-based drawing. The edges of Mathomat have a set of really useful rulers including: a millimeter scale, a number line (and axis marking tool) in centimeters, a linear radian scale and a street directory scale at 1:20,000.

Mathomat is densely packed with mathematically important shapes, arranged in clusters, examples of some of them include: the tessellation cluster of regular polygons with common side lengths, a set of important triangles, two shape clusters for drawing prisms and a graphing cluster. The great range of circles and ellipses on Mathomat replace the need for a compass. Use the right-angled sides on the Mathomat with its parallel and isometric lines as set squares for technical drawing”.

Mathomat is supplied in a number of different student pack options, as well as in class packs with a range of teacher resource publications
