How I Use It
Students are able to examine and manipulate 27 3D shapes by rotating, resizing and labeling . They can unfold shapes into many different nets, which helps increases their spatial visualization skills. Two additional modes give students the ability to build solids from nets and to print nets to build with paper.
My Take
This app combines many valuable features: visualization, construction and deconstruction. Students love the ability to transform and change the appearance of the shapes. App smashing opportunities abound as shapes can be saved. Great versatility with digital and physical capabilities.
