Dice are an example of cubes in real life.
Explore the cube by cutting out the cube geometry net, folding it and gluing the tabs.
Cube - Plain: you can trace this onto decorative paper or decorate it as you see fit
- a platonic solid (a three dimensional shape made up
of identical two dimensional shapes with the same number meeting at
- 3 squares meet at each vertex (or corner)
- 6 Faces
- 8 Vertices
- 12 Edges
Surface Area of a cube = 6 a 2 where a is the length of an edge
Volume of a cube = a 3 where a is the length of an edge
