####Cube, Wired Cube, See-Through Cube
The cube is used frequently in mathematics for multiple purposes. However, many students have trouble visualizing the relationships among the various pieces inside the cube. This design highlights the diagonals around and within the cube. Perhaps it could be used by some to build a mental model for the cube and beyond.
Some interesting questions to pose: (1) How many right triangles (equilateral triangles, parallelograms) can you find? Describe them. (2) How many different 3D solids can you find? Describe them.
The top edges might hang a little bit, depending on the printer. In such cases, please try a smaller version.
STEAM educator, learning from and working with K-12 STEAM teachers to explore new ideas of teaching and engagement. I firmly believe ART is at the core of STEM learning or all human learning! I owe my ideas and designs to the hundreds of K-12 children and teachers and university professors I have had the pleasure of working with, in multiple disciplines-- math, science,engineering language arts, social studies, early childhood education and more! All mistakes, of course, are mine! There is no warranty or liability whatsoever implied or explicit behind the designs or ideas. They are all posted for their potential educational values.
When working with children, please strictly observe all safety and health procedures! Please refer to the NSTA safety guides: http://www.nsta.org/safety/.
