Illustrative MathematicsVaries

The goal of this task is to work with nets for three-dimensional shapes and use them to calculate surface area. There are several extension problems available for this task including the following. How many different nets is it possible to make for the rectangular prism in part (b)? Students will need to decide what it means for two nets to be the same and will have to experiment to find all of the possibilities.
