  Introduction | Try It Yourself: 3D Figures/Isometric Dot Paper | Problem Reflection | Summary | Your Journal


The interactive activity below asks you to draw three-dimensional figures on two-dimensional isometric dot paper.

This activity begins with two different views of a unit cube drawn on isometric dot paper. These are the only two possible views, because all six faces are the same color. However, if any one or more faces had identifying marks, such as a different color or letter, then other views would be possible.

Tip: Build the figures at home using unit cubes. Try holding the cubes in different orientations so you can see the possibilities in both the three-dimensional "real world" and the two-dimensional representations on the isometric dot paper.
