Representing 3D Shapes SS6

In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students interpret 2D representations of 3D shapes, analyse 3D shapes using plans, elevations, and isometric drawings and develop their reasoning ability in spatial contexts. Many students may have met these ideas before, but they may still experience difficulties in this area. In this session, students match cards showing 3D drawings of ‘cube houses’ with plans and elevations. They are then provided with an opportunity to create their own cube houses and draw their plans, elevations and isometric representations. This session is much enhanced if the accompanying software Building houses is used. This is a computer program produced by the Freudenthal Institute for secondary education in Holland.
