Geometry Nets - Cubes

A cube is a three dimensional shape with six identical square sides. All of its angles are right angles. It is a type of square prism.

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 characteristics:

- a platonic solid (a three dimensional shape made up
of identical two dimensional shapes with the same number meeting at
every vertex)

- 3 squares meet at each vertex (or corner)
- 6 Faces
- 8 Vertices
- 12 Edges

Cube formulas:

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
