# 3D Shapes

These activities use Mathomat to explore patterns in 3D space that have fascinated people since ancient times. They involve design and construction.

3D Shapes

## Activities to explore the 3D shapes that can be constructed using 2D shapes such as regular polygons.

The 3D shape activities in Mathomat Explorer series involve students in understanding the Platonic and Archimedean solids. These are some of simplest geometric shapes, and they have fascinated generations of people since ancient times. Engaging with these activities using Mathomat will reinforce knowledge of basic geometry and increase skills in accurate geometric construction. These activities foster appreciation of the role of geometry in art as well as deepening student understanding of the mathematics curriculum. There are many wonderful examples of geometric solids to create using Mathomat in the Mathomat Activity Centre.
