Dice Net Challenge
Place the faces of the dice on the corresponding faces of the net of a cube. This challenge requires number and spacial awareness skills.
You can earn a trophy for completing each of the eleven Dice Net Challenges. The reason that there are eleven challenges is that there are eleven different nets for a cube; each challenge involves a different net.
When the six dice faces have been dragged onto the net the computer will check to se whether you have met the conditions in the challenge. If you get it wrong you can rarrange to dice faces until you get it right.
Please let us know how you got on with these challenges requiring spacial awareness and an understanding of numbers. You can leave your comments and suggestions below.
