Illustrative MathematicsVaries

The purpose of this task is for students to work on their visualization skills and to apply the Pythagorean Theorem. The first part of the task actually draws on mathematics students first encounter in 6th grade. It is important for students to first try to visualize the two-dimensional path on the surface of the three-dimensional box and then to build it to see if they are correct.
