Spatial Reasoning using Cubes and Isometric Drawings

In this interactive geometry investigation you will explore polyhedra using different representations and perspectives for three dimensional block figures. In addition, you will examine area and volume concepts for block figures within this context. There are four parts to this i-Math Investigation shown below. Each part has multiple activities.

Start the investigation with the Introduction to explore the Isometric Drawing Tool.
