Building a Box
ORC# 5041
Resource Information
Resource Type: Lessons
Discipline: Mathematics
Professional Commentary: This site challenges students to find all possible nets that can be folded into a cube (there are 11 of them) and to identify the properties that characterize those nets that can be folded into a cube versus those that cannot. The lesson can be taught using centimeter grid paper, NCTM developed applets, or hands-on mathematics...
