In this investigation, you must try to make houses using cubes. If
the base must not spill over 4 squares and you have 7 cubes which
stand for 7 rooms, what different designs can you come up with?
Here are four cubes joined together. How many other arrangements of four cubes can you find? Can you draw them on dotty paper?
Can you make a 3x3 cube with these shapes made from small cubes?
Try using multilink cubes.
Try starting at one end of the shape and adding a cube at a time.
You can look at each shape from above or from the sides.
