Y6 – Maths – 3D Shapes: Euler’s Law and Platonic Solids

As part of our unit of shape, Year 6 children have been exploring 3D shapes. In this lesson, children were investigating Euler’s Law (That, in many 3D shapes, the number of faces plus the number of vertices is 2 more than the number of edges or F+V=E+2), using polydron.

Children were also built the 5 Platonic Solids (completely regular 3D shapes) and attempted to create an elusive 6th.
