Lesson Plans

Analyzing Polyhedra:

Students will construct several simple polyhedra, then count the number of faces, edges, and vertices. These data should suggest Euler's formula. 

Type: Lesson Plan

Three-Dimensional Play Dough:

This hands-on lesson is a review for three-dimensional figures. The students make models of three-dimensional figures and then use these play dough models to count the vertices, edges, and faces.

Unit/Lesson Sequence

Three Dimensional Shapes:

In this interactive, self-guided unit on 3-dimensional shape, students (and teachers) explore 3-dimensional shapes, determine surface area and volume, derive Euler's formula, and investigate Platonic solids. Interactive quizzes and animations are included throughout, including a 15 question quiz for student completion.
