              Nets of Solids

              Students learn how to visualise a solid 3D shape from its net and how different nets can create identical solids. In the main part of the lesson students learn to investigate all the unique nets for a cube and cuboid.  As learning progresses they consider the nets of various other prisms including cylinders.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to recognise different unique nets for a cube.
              • Most students should be able to recognise unique nets for a cube, cuboid and regular prisms.
              • Some students should be able to construct a net to scale for any regular prism.
