Connect three-dimensional objects with their nets and other two-dimensional representations (ACMMG111)

LO: To connect 3-D objects with their nets.


  • the definition of a net

  • the basic 2-D shapes

  • the properties of 3-D shapes (faces, edges and vertices)


  • that nets using 2-D shapes can be used to create 3-D shapes.


  • I can connect 3-D objects with their nets.

What are Nets?

A net is a 3-D object unfolded back into a 2-D object. For example, a cube can be flattened into 6 equal squares.
