A solid is in 3D. But we can only draw in 2D....

If you look at a cube from the top, it looks like a square as the face is a square.
The same is true of the other views.
Looking at something from the top is called a plan.
Looking from the front and side are called the elevations.
So for the cube we have the views as
PlanFront ElevationSide Elevation
Notice that the squares are all equal in size as its a cube!!
Now go the the next page
For each of these solids...
1) Draw it's plan, front and side elevation
2) Draw the solid using isometric paper
You have 10 cubes and the plan view for 6 different solids.
Your task is to work out what these solids look like and present your
answers to the class.
You will not have time to complete all 6.
You have 30 mins to complete the task.
Today, you may select who should take each role.
Put the label for your role on your table so everyone knows which role
How did your group do today?
What did you do better than last time?
What weren't you as good at?
Why was that?
What target should you work on next time?
