GM4-6: Relate three-dimensional models to two-dimensional representations, and vice versa.

Elaboration on this Achievement Objective

This means students will focus on key characteristics of 3-dimensional models (shape and relationship of faces and surfaces, faces joining at edges and vertices) to create 2-dimensional drawings of those models. Drawings of objects can take the form of isometric projections, plan views or nets. Students should also be able to construct a model from given 2-dimensional drawings, for example build a model using interlocking cubes from the plan views below.


Students should be able to create nets for simple polyhedral and closed surfaces by visualising the “unwrapping” of those solids, for example the net for a cube.
