    Default The Universal Pattern (3-D thinking)

    Let's discuss the Universal Pattern and tools used to encourage students to think 3-Dimensionally.

    We have the patch, and drawings to represent the Universal pattern, but these are still displayed in 2 dimensions. So, is this really an effective tool to help a student think 3-dimensially?

    What other tools, methods, drills do you teach or can think of that would aid a student in grasping the process of thinking 3-Dimensionally? Other than playing chess on a three tiered board that is! LOL.

    If you would like to read a lengthy post on this subject; somewhere deep in the archieves of MT Rainman had 1 possibly 2 threads on this matter. One of which was really good in explanation and others thoughts. You may not have enough people here to discuss it. Go in the advanced search and look for titles of 3D universal pattern or a combination of the beginning.

    The AKKI's Universal patch, designed by Mr. Mills, is in 3-D.

    Good topic. I think that a lot of us on here might be able to look at the Universal Pattern (from any assoc.) and apply the concepts of height, width, and depth. Those are three dimensions after all.
