Then it suddenly came to me. I felt as if I was in a Sesame Street episode about shapes! It has been a long time that I watched Sesame Street, I guess it would have been together with my brother when he was little, so I couldn't have named a certain episode, but of course there are several on YouTube, like this one.
Another memory of shapes in my own childhood were the first basics of set theory that they taught us in elementary school which led to quite the outrage among some parents.
We got little flat plastic pieces which had different colors, surfaces, and - you've guessed it - shapes.
I'm afraid we were rather into building flat houses and cars from them and not so much into becoming math experts ;-)
For today's post I looked for interesting shapes on Zibbet, and this is what I've found.
