This is a silent video showing the operation of a 19th century magic lantern projector.

### Wat Si Saket Monastery - mathematics activities

This photograph of a section of one of the temples at Wat Si Saket in Vientiane, Laos, suggests explorations of the concept of geometric perspective relationships. This concept provides a link between the visual arts (drawing, design and photography) and mathematics. Teachers are encouraged to scan all the ideas suggested ...

### Garden at the Red Fort - mathematics activities

This photograph of a section of the garden at the Red Fort in Agra, India, suggests explorations of several relationships relative to the background 'square' regions. Teachers are encouraged to scan all the ideas suggested here as relevant to the various year level groupings, as there is clearly an increasing mathematical ...

### Using 'Cities taking shape' - Teacher idea

This Teacher idea includes comments following the teaching of R11361 'Cities taking shape - unit of work' to a years 4-5 class. The unit promotes students' knowledge of 2D and 3D shapes, and the relationship between them. It offers interactive and hands-on tasks to develop, consolidate and extend students' understandings ...

### Using 'Photo hunt' - Teacher idea

This Teacher idea provides video footage of students using an interactive digital resource to explore 2D representations of 3D objects. It describes and provides access to the digital curriculum resource used in the classroom, along with other relevant resources.

### Smart's Labyrinth, 1994: Always the light

This clip shows artist Jeffrey Smart describing his approach to painting. It combines shots of the urban landscape that Smart paints with examples of his work. The artist explains that he is inspired by the way light falls on an object, rather than by the object itself, and that he sees and celebrates beauty in urban landscapes. ...

### 'Corrugated Gioconda', 1976

This painting by Jeffrey Smart shows a poster with the image of the Mona Lisa ('La Gioconda') on a high corrugated iron fence in Italy that is covered with the peeling remains of many other brightly coloured posters.

### Wolf Creek, 2005: 'No sign of intelligent life forms'

This clip shows three young travellers stopping for fuel at an outback roadhouse at Emu Creek, seemingly unaware of the menace that is subtly conveyed by the use of a range of film techniques. As Ben (Nathan Phillips) fills the petrol tank Kristy (Kestie Morassi) looks over a fence at a forlorn rubbish dump and Liz (Cassandra ...

### 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 ...

### Face painter: finding faces 1

Identify polygons on a range of prisms and polyhedra such as a cube, square pyramid or triangular prism. Picture in your head all sides of a solid. Estimate how many faces the object has. Rotate it to see all of its faces. Paint each face of a given shape such as a triangle or rectangle.

### Face painter: locating faces

Identify faces of a range of prisms and polyhedra such as a triangular pyramid, pentagonal prism or L-shaped block. Picture in your head all sides of a solid. Estimate how many faces the object has. Rotate it to paint all of its faces. This learning object is one in a series of four objects.

### Face painter: predicting faces

Identify polygons on a range of prisms and polyhedra such as a cuboid, square pyramid or hexagonal prism. Picture in your head all sides of a solid. Estimate how many faces of each shape the object has. Rotate it to see and paint all of its faces. This learning object is one in a series of four objects.

### 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 ...

### Photo hunt [Flash Player version]

Explore visual perspectives of solids such as cylinders, cones and cuboids. Match a 2D photo of a group of 3D objects taken from a different viewpoint. Identify the relative positions of the solids by comparing 2D outlines and colours. Rotate a base grid until the view matches the original photo. Progress through four levels. ...

### Photo hunt: level 1 [Flash Player version]

Explore visual perspectives of solids such as cylinders, cones and cuboids. Match a 2D photo of a group of 3D objects taken from a different viewpoint. Identify the relative positions of the solids by comparing 2D outlines and colours. Rotate a base grid until the view matches the original photo. Both the original photo ...

### Photo hunt: level 2 [Flash Player version]

Explore visual perspectives of solids such as cylinders, spheres, cones and cuboids. Match a 2D photo of a group of 3D objects taken from a different viewpoint. Identify the relative positions of the solids by comparing 2D outlines and colours. Rotate a base grid until the view matches the original photo. You may need to ...

### Photo hunt: level 3 [Flash Player version]

Explore visual perspectives of solids such as cylinders, spheres, cones and cuboids. Match a 2D photo of a group of 3D objects taken from a different viewpoint.
