Stellated Rhombic Dodecahedron Project

#4895
Overview

Create a shape (stellated rhombic dodecahedron) that will flip into a cube.

This creative manipulative will bring geometry to life. Assemble square-based pyramids to create an interactive stellated, rhombic dodecahedron. Find the surface area, volume, and the sum of the angles for each pyramid. Determine the surface area and volume of the dodecahedron.

Assemble nets for cones, cylindars, cubes and rectangular prisms for surface area and volume. Challenge students to create dimensional shapes by combining various solids to think outside the box!

Grade Level: 3-5

Students create an intricate shape from a square-based pyramid, to learn geometry, problem solving, or plain math fun!
