Teaching and Learning 3-D Geometry

These work cards for teacher training courses are designed to address the latest Primary Maths Curriculum. They will provide a number of practical exercises and teaching tips using Polydron.

Written by Bob Ansell, Senior Lecturer in Mathematics Education at the University of Northampton, the work-cards cover working with Triangles, Pyramids, Prisms, Open Cubes, Nets of a Cube, Venn Diagrams, Antiprisms, and Platonic Solids. The final four activities are extensions which are more demanding and are suitable for promoting 3-D geometry amongst primary mathematics specialists or those aspiring to leadership in primary mathematics. The topics covered are Archimedean Solids, Euler's Polyhedron Formula and Tetrahedron Puzzle.

Thanks very much to Bob Ansell.
