3D Shapes From 2D Nets Video
A common real-world situation is used to explain how a 3D object can be created from a 2D 'net' shape using computers. We learn how to identify, visualise and describe properties of rectangles and 3D solids. Knowledge of properties is used to draw 2D shapes and identify and draw nets of 3D shapes.
This unit is made up of a number of mini activities. After finding the 12 pentominoes pupils use the shapes in the following activities: Find the symmetry and rotational symmetry of the shapes
Investigate which pentominoes will tessellate without being rotated, then which will tessellate when rotated. Fit the shapes into varying sizes of rectangles. The unit contains pentomino shapes to download and print out.
Tessellating Triangles Text
Equilateral triangles have three sides the same length and three angles the same. Can you make them fit together to cover the paper without any gaps between them? This is called 'tessellating'.
Virtual Pinboard Interactive
Explore 2D shapes on this virtual pinboard where you can control the pinboard background and transpency of the shape, as well as the number of vertices.
