### Shape maker: blocker

Transform 2D shapes to make a stack of 3D objects. For example, spin a triangle on its central axis to form a cone or extrude it to form a triangular prism. Choose a shape and imagine it being spun around an axis or extruded. Predict which 3D block your 2D shape will make. Picture other transformations in your head and ...

### Shape maker: replicator

Transform 2D shapes to make 3D objects. Match part of a complex object. Start with a shape such as a crescent, T-shape or pentagon. For example, spin a cross shape around its central axis to form a wheel-like block or extrude it to form a prism. Choose a shape and imagine it being spun around an axis or extruded. Picture ...

### Shape maker: stacker

Transform 2D shapes to make a stack of 3D objects. For example, spin a circle around a lateral axis to form a doughnut-shaped solid or extrude it to form a cylinder. Choose a shape and imagine it being spun around an axis or extruded. Predict which 3D block your 2D shape will make. Picture other transformations in your ...

### Shape maker: simple objects

Transform 2D shapes to make a stack of 3D objects. Start with a circle, triangle, square or rectangle. For example, spin a circle on its central axis to form a sphere or extrude it to form a cylinder. Choose a shape and imagine it being spun around an axis or extruded. Picture which 3D block your 2D shape will make. This ...

### Shape maker: simple shapes: assessment

Test your understanding of how the transformations of spinning and extruding can change some of the most basic 2D shapes (such as squares, triangles and circles) into various 3D shapes, such as cylinders, cones and different prisms. Visualise the effect of a particular transformation on a selected 2D shape. Predict whether ...

### Shape maker: complex shapes: assessment

Test your understanding of how the transformations of spinning and extruding can change some less basic 2D shapes (such as a pentagon, cross, crescent and trapezium) into specific atypical 3D shapes. Visualise the effect of a particular transformation on a selected 2D shape. Predict whether the result will match a given ...

### Shape maker: complex objects 1

Transform 2D shapes to make a stack of 3D objects. Start with a shape such as a crescent, semicircle, circle, triangle or rectangle. For example, spin a semicircle around its straight edge to form a sphere or extrude it to form a half cylinder. Choose a shape and imagine it being spun around an axis or extruded. Picture ...

### Shape maker: complex objects 2

Transform 2D shapes to make a stack of 3D objects. Start with a shape such as a crescent, T-shape or pentagon. For example, spin a cross shape around its central axis to form a wheel-like block or extrude it to form a prism. Choose a shape and imagine it being spun around an axis or extruded. Picture which 3D block your ...

### Visualising two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes

This collection comprises 24 digital curriculum resources, including learning objects from the series 'Shape sorter', 'Face painter', 'Geoboard', 'Photo hunt', 'Viewfinder' and 'Shape maker'.

### 3D Shape Geometry

This lesson plan for teachers explores the characteristics of 3D prisms as an introduction for students to plan and create their own 3D prisms using a 3D printer. The lesson steps the class through the process by first exploring the characteristics of common 3D shapes including symmetry, before designing a 3D shape on paper ...

### Violin made by Arthur Hodgson, 1936

This is a timber violin made by Arthur Hodgson in Paramatta, New South Wales, in 1936. The belly is highly arched with two long irregular f-holes cut into it, and it appears to have been made from a single piece of timber, possibly pine or spruce.
