Shape maker: simple objects

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson

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 learning object is one 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.
