How do I fix building errors with Angular Material Components?

Issue

Am I missing something in the configuration?

ng Version command

Versions
Angular CLI: 1.7.0
Node: 8.1.1
OS: win32 x64
Angular: 5.2.5
... common, compiler, compiler-cli, core, forms, http
... language-service, platform-browser, platform-browser-dynamic
... router

@angular/animations: 5.2.9
@angular/cdk: 5.2.4
@angular/cli: 1.7.0
@angular/material: 5.2.4
@angular-devkit/build-optimizer: 0.3.1

Repro steps

Step 1 Create new project ng new any-name
Step 2 By following steps on https://material.angular.io/guide/getting-started
i.e

npm install --save @angular/material @angular/cdk
npm install --save @angular/animations

Step 3

Material.module.ts

import {MatButtonModule,
        MatCheckboxModule} from '@angular/material';
 @NgModule({
   imports: [MatButtonModule, MatCheckboxModule],
 })
 export class MaterialModule { }

app.component.html

<div>
  <input type="button" mat-button placeholder="Holla!">

  <button mat-raised-button >Click me!</button>
  <mat-checkbox>Check me!</mat-checkbox>
</div>

App.module.ts

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

import {BrowserAnimationsModule} from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';

import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import {MaterialModule} from '../shared/material.module'

@NgModule({
  declarations: [
    AppComponent,
  ],
  imports: [
    BrowserModule,
    MaterialModule,
    BrowserAnimationsModule
  ],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }

styles.css

/* You can add global styles to this file, and also import other style files */
@import "~@angular/material/prebuilt-themes/indigo-pink.css";

Observed behavior

compiler.js:485 Uncaught Error: Template parse errors:
‘mat-checkbox’ is not a known element:

  1. If ‘mat-checkbox’ is an Angular component, then verify that it is part of this module.

  2. If ‘mat-checkbox’ is a Web Component then add ‘CUSTOM_ELEMENTS_SCHEMA’ to the ‘@NgModule.schemas’ of this component to suppress this message. ("

Desired behavior

What would like to see implemented?
It should load the angular material components.

Main.ts

import { enableProdMode } from '@angular/core';
import { platformBrowserDynamic } from '@angular/platform-browser-dynamic';
import 'hammerjs';
import { AppModule } from './app/app.module';
import { environment } from './environments/environment';

if (environment.production) {
  enableProdMode();
}

platformBrowserDynamic().bootstrapModule(AppModule)
  .catch(err => console.log(err));

Solution

As per the example given here, you also need to export the material modules from your shared material module

https://material.angular.io/guide/getting-started#step-3-import-the-component-modules

import {MatButtonModule,
        MatCheckboxModule} from '@angular/material';
 @NgModule({
   imports: [MatButtonModule, MatCheckboxModule],
   exports: [MatButtonModule, MatCheckboxModule]
 })
 export class MaterialModule { }
