Shape maker: replicator

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson

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 which 3D block your 2D shape will make. This learning object is the most difficult in a series of six objects.
Students see the relationships between 2D shapes and 3D objects by visualising the movement (translation or rotation) of the 2D shape and predicting the resulting 3D object.
