Intro to nets of polyhedra (Full video)

Khan Academy
Supporting grades: 6

Description: Admittedly, "nets of polyhedra" sounds like the title of a bad sci-fi movie about man-eating, multi-headed fish. But in reality, nets of polyhedra are just 2D objects that wrap around 3D objects, like wrapping paper around presents. Created by Sal Khan. What we're going to explore in this video are polyhedra, which is just the plural of a polyhedron. And a polyhedron is a three-dimensional shape that has flat surfaces and straight edges. So, for example, a cube is a polyhedron.
