'Cubic Net' printed from http://nrich.maths.org/

It is important to try to visualise the net wrapped up into a cube, using the following ideas
  1. You might like to think of the yellow and purple faces as the 'Top' and 'Bottom' of the 3D cube.
  2. The Blue - White - Red - Green faces wrap around to make the sides of the cube
  3. Twisiting the 'Top' of the cube will cause the top layer of the Blue - White - Red and Green faces to twist -- Why not try this out
  4. Twisting the 'Bottom' of the cube will cause the bottom layer of the Blue - White - Red and Green faces to twise -- Why not try this out?
You might also like to try to investigate the net whilst holding a 3D cube.
