How Do You Identify a Three-Dimensional Figure from a Net?

Note:

A net is a two-dimensional pattern of a three-dimensional solid. Did you know that there is some strategy involved in using a net to identify the three-dimensional solid it represents? In this tutorial, you'll see how to do just that! Check it out!

Background Tutorials

Represent three-dimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles, and use the nets to find the surface area of these figures. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

You've probably seen pictures of Egyptian pyramids, or maybe you've even seen them in person! Those pyramids mostly have either triangular or rectangular bases, but did you know that there are other types of pyramids? In this tutorial, you'll see what a three-dimensional solid needs to be called a pyramid. You'll also see how to name these pyramids, so take a look!

Understanding solids is a building block for finding their lateral area, surface area, and volume. In this tutorial, you'll see examples of solids and learn their different parts. Take a look!
