# Pictorial Nets of Three Dimensional Shapes

## Exploring with a Net of a Cube

Begin by moving the red slider from left to right. Observe how the net forms the three dimensional shape of a cube. Move the red slider back to the left. Now begin changing the pattern of the net by moving the blue slider. Notice that though the pattern of the net changes, the different patterns still form a cube by moving the red slider from left to right.

## Exploring with a Net of a Cylinder.

Use the slider labeled h to explore with changing the height of the cylinder. Observe how changes in the net cause changes in the cylinder. Then, use the net slider or the play button to observe how the net forms the three dimensional shape of a cylinder.

## Exploring with a Net of a Cone.

Use the sliders labeled h and r to explore with changing the height of the cone and the radius of its base. Observe how changes in the net cause changes in the cylinder. Then, use the net slider or the play button to observe how the net forms the three dimensional shape of a cylinder.
