There are 366 different Starters of The Day, many to choose from. You will find in the left column below some starters on the topic of Shape (3D). In the right column below are links to related online activities, videos and teacher resources.
A lesson starter does not have to be on the same topic as the main part of the lesson or the topic of the previous lesson. It is often very useful to revise or explore other concepts by using a starter based on a totally different area of Mathematics.Shape (3D) Starters:
Dice Nets. Determine whether the given nets would fold to produce a dice.
Dice Reflections. A dice is reflected in two mirrors. What numbers can be seen?
Faces and Edges. Find the number of faces, edges and vertices on some familiar objects.
Icosahedron. How many triangles are there on the surface of a regular icosahedron.Featured Activity Tran Tunnels
Answer the questions as you find your way through the tunnels. Collect coins on the way. There's a musical theme to this adventure game and you won't be able to complete it unless you solve all of the clues.

A particular skill is required to be able to excel in this area of Mathematics. Spatial awareness is important for solving multi-step problems that arise in areas such as architecture, engineering, science, art, games, and everyday life. Children have varying abilities visualizing three dimensional relationships but these abilities can be developed through practical activities and working through mathematical problems. Breaking down three dimensional situations into smaller two dimensional parts in an important strategy for problem solving.

This demo allows you to enter a mathematical expression in terms of x and y. When you hit the calculate button, the demo will calculate the value of the expression over the x and y ranges provided and then plot the result as a surface. The graph can be zoomed in by scrolling with your mouse, and rotated by dragging around. Clicking on the graph will reveal the x, y and z values at that particular point.
The table below lists which functions can be entered in the expression box.
The sine of x in radians
The cosine of x in radians
The tangent of x in radians
asin(x), acos(x), atan(x)
The inverse of the three trigonometric functions listed above
The square root of x (for positive x only)
The natural logarithm of x
The power of x to the y
You can also apply certain constraints/inequalities to the graph. If, for example, you wanted to show the funtion \(x^2\) - \(y^2\) but only in areas where \(x\) is greater than \(y\), you would enter "if (x > y, x*x - y*y)" in the expression box. You can also enter a third option which will be plotted if the first condition is not met - for example "if (x > y, x*x - y*y, x)" will plot \(x^2\) - \(y^2\) in all areas where \( x \) is greater than \( y\), and \(x \) in all areas where x is not greater than y.
The resolution slider can be used to increase the number of data points displayed on the graph, which gives a smoother final result, but since this needs more computational power, you may notice a slight decrease in frame rate when interacting with the graph.
Every time you hit the "Calculate" button, the URL updates with your current settings meaning you can share a link directly to a graph of your choice without having to keep typing in the settings.
Please note, if your surface includes complex numbers, only the real part will be plotted.

Question: Could someone please provide me with a website which would give lots of examples of 3D shapes and their nets? Thanks in advance
Answers: Here you go. http://www.mathsisfun.com/platonic_solids.html
Question: Hey, I need the net ( 2D shapes that fold up to make a 3D shape) for this shape: http://jamieoleary.net/images/moneyball.jpg I cant seem to find it on google so i decided to come here. If i can make this, or something like this this would really help my current math grade. PLZ & TY!
Answers: It looks like it is a bunch of square "rings" put together. Each 'ring' would be made of 8 isosceles trapezoids, with each side of the 'ring' being made up of two trapezoids sharing the long side.
Answers: You cannot convert directly because there are no native libraries in .NET. If you are using OpenGL or DirectX you can call Translation and Rotation functions. However you need to obtain the verticies. To do this you need to have 2D and 3D objects defined so that you can use their coordinates. From that information you should be able to create a function which maps a 2D shape given several 3D coordinates. Now if you are talking about unfolding a 3D cube into 2D then you are talking about mapping. For a game this would be the same and "wrapping" or creating skin. Consider the point of view if you are in a cube room Front | Top --- Left-----Bottom-----Right | Back Try Drawing a picture on a piece of paper. Notice the front and the back end up "up side down" So to properly map this we have to invert the front and the back.
Answers: What do you mean by nets? Angles? Degrees?
