Session 9: Solids
 

In this session, you will build solids, including Platonic solids, in order to explore some of their properties. By creating and manipulating these solids, you will develop a deeper sense of some of the geometric relationships between them.

For information on required and/or optional materials for this session, see Note 1.

In This Session:

Part A:

Platonic Solids

Part B:

Nets

Part C:

Cross Sections
