Face painter: finding faces 1

TLF ID L1068

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.

Educational details

Key learning objectives
• Students identify the relationship between 2D shapes and 3D objects.
• Students identify regular shapes.
• Students visualise unseen parts of 3D objects.
Educational value
• Enables students to identify 2D shapes (triangles, squares, and rectangles) on the faces of 3D objects.
• Requires students to estimate the number of occurrences of a particular 2D shape in a 3D object.
• Enables students to rotate a 3D object.
• Enables the student to paint like faces within a 3D object.
• Encourages cross checking of the estimate with the solution.
