### Packing 3D Shapes

##### Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

What 3D shapes occur in nature. How efficiently can you pack these shapes together?

### Immersion

##### Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

Various solids are lowered into a beaker of water. How does the water level rise in each case?

### The Solid

##### Stage: 3 and 4 Challenge Level:

A task which depends on members of the group working collaboratively to reach a single goal.

### Which Solid?

##### Stage: 2, 3 and 4 Challenge Level:

This task develops spatial reasoning skills. By framing and asking questions a member of the team has to find out what mathematical object they have chosen.

### Castles in the Middle

##### Stage: 2 and 3 Challenge Level:

### Investigating Solids with Face-transitivity

##### Stage: 4 and 5

In this article, we look at solids constructed using symmetries of their faces.

### Which Solids Can We Make?

##### Stage: 3 Challenge Level:

Interior angles can help us to work out which polygons will tessellate. Can we use similar ideas to predict which polygons combine to create semi-regular solids?
