Spinner, Tai Chi, Yin-Yang, 阴阳图, 太极图: They All Spin ...
The spinner comes in three sizes and two styles. The size of each spinning yin-yang (taichi) disk is 30mm, 25mm, and 20mm, respectively, with either three or six arms. I have taken advantage of the features of 3D design for a fun and mathematically rich spinning toy. It can be printed in one piece at a resolution between 0.1m to 0.2mm.
.1 to .2mm
The inner disks should be loose upon removal. If necessary, please wiggle it a little to loosen them.
STEAM educator, learning from and working with K-12 STEAM teachers to explore new ideas of teaching and engagement. I firmly believe ART is at the core of STEM learning or all human learning! I owe my ideas and designs to the hundreds of K-12 children and teachers and university professors I have had the pleasure of working with, in multiple disciplines-- math, science,engineering language arts, social studies, early childhood education and more! All mistakes, of course, are mine! There is no warranty or liability whatsoever implied or explicit behind the designs or ideas. They are all posted for their potential educational values.
When working with children, please strictly observe all safety and health procedures! Please refer to the NSTA safety guides: http://www.nsta.org/safety/.
