Cube Construction

This is a simple interactive that does nothing more than allow you to create 3D drawings of models made with cubes. Drag cubes from the left to construct your diagrams.

It was designed to be a tool for teachers or pupils to use when working on the following activities:

In addition this tool can be used work on the following investigations:

Tip: Each time a cube is dragged it is put on an invisible layer in front of the layers all the other cubes are on. Repeatedly double clicking a cube sends it backwards one layer at a time.

You might find Triangular Paper useful for sketching cubes.

Mathematicians are not the people who find Maths easy; they are the people who enjoy how mystifying, puzzling and hard it is. Are you a mathematician?

"This triangle starter is excellent. I have used it with all of my ks3 and ks4 classes and they are all totally focused when counting the triangles."

Numeracy

"Numeracy is a proficiency which is developed mainly in Mathematics but also in other subjects. It is more than an ability to do basic arithmetic. It involves developing confidence and competence with numbers and measures. It requires understanding of the number system, a repertoire of mathematical techniques, and an inclination and ability to solve quantitative or spatial problems in a range of contexts. Numeracy also demands understanding of the ways in which data are gathered by counting and measuring, and presented in graphs, diagrams, charts and tables."

Go Maths

Learning and understanding Mathematics, at every level, requires learner engagement. Mathematics is not a spectator sport. Sometimes traditional teaching fails to actively involve students. One way to address the problem is through the use of interactive activities and this web site provides many of those. The Go Maths main page links to more activities designed for students in upper Secondary/High school.
