A geometric net is a flat drawing that can be cut and folded into a three dimensional figure. For example, six identical squares can be made into a cube. This is because a cube has six sides, all of which are identical squares. Each of the drawings in this book can be cut and folded into a three dimensional geometric object.
Geometric nets provide many hours of fascinating fun! Each net represents the surface of a unique geometric shape. Some of the shapes were described as much as 2500 years ago.
As a professional math teacher, Mr. McAdams quickly realized that affordable tools for math literacy were sadly deficient. Committed to improving the math learning environment, he has spent many years developing math literacy tools such as this project book.
There are two different project books available: Geometric Nets Project Book with 80 geometric nets, untabbed; Geometric Nets Mega Project Book Tabbed, with 253 geometric nets, all tabbed for easier construction."
