# Geometry Nets

Students learn that a net is the shape formed by "unfolding" a 3-dimensional figure, so a net shows all the faces that make up the surface area of the figure. Students are then asked to determine what type of 3-dimensional figure can be made from a given net (note that a cylinder has 2 circular bases, a pyramid has triangular faces, a cone has 1 circular base, and a prism has rectangular faces). Students are also asked to determine if a given net can be used to make a cube.
