Prism to 3 pyramids -- nets
- David Chandler
This activity provides the net patterns that allow you to create paper fold-up models of a set of equal volume pyramids that combine into a prism. Display then print out each pattern, then cut them out, fold UP on the lines, and tape the edges. Printing issues: 1. Use a scale setting of 2:1 or experiment to make sure the whole diagram is displayed. 2. I had trouble printing the Geometry View from Linux. It printed garbage. Exporting the Geometry View as a Picture, then printing the picture worked for me. I would be interested in hearing whether others have the same difficulty, and which operating system is used.
