Isometric Drawings

Students learn how to draw three-dimensional shapes using isometric paper.  As learning progresses they are challenged to consider rotations of shapes and alternative perspectives.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to construct a cuboid to scale using isometric paper.
• Most students should be able to construct a rectilinear prism to scale using isometric paper.
• Some students should be able to construct any rectilinear solid to scale using isometric paper.
