#MathArtChallenge Day 3: Isometric Cube Cutouts

The #MathArtChallenge is just a fun, simple way to engage our brains during this time of unease. All tasks are low tech: paper, pencil, maybe string. Nothing fancy. I would LOVE to see what you come up with. Post on social media with the hashtag #MathArtChallenge!

THE CHALLENGE: Draw a cube by connecting 3 rhombi (see below). Then use only parallel lines to those in the rhombi to embellish the cube.

MATERIALS NEEDED: writing surface, writing utensil, colors?

  1. For students who do not have compasses:
    Using a bowl, trace 2 circles. Cut one out and fold it in half twice. Then use the radius of this folded circle to mark out vertexes for inscribing the hexagon around the circle that hasn’t been cut out. Connect every other vertex of the hexagon to the center of the circle to draw the rhombi.
