### 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: 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: 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

### Shape overlays: picture studio

Position two simple shapes to form an overlap, then cut out that new shape. For example, lay a rectangle over a circle to make a semicircle. Make several shapes. Rotate the shapes and move them around to make pictures. Build a new picture or match an existing picture such as a fish or a truck.

### 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 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 ...
