Mathematics Hiding in the Nets for a Cube

Kyungsoon Jeon 

March 2009, Volume 15, Issue 7, Page 394

Abstract:

By connecting two- and three-dimensional geometry, this article expands a mathematical discussion that third graders provided to the question, “How many different nets can you draw that can fold into a cube?” (Mann 2004, p. 174). The author also makes connections to other platonic solids and to Eüler’s formula.
