Lesson on Properties of Prisms and Pyramids with 3D Printing Pens

The two lessons described here were of Primary 5 and 6 levels, where the first lesson focused on the properties (shape and number of faces, including lateral faces and bases) of different forms of prisms, and the second lesson focused on those of the pyramids. Students spent most of class time using 3D Printing Pens to … Continue reading Lesson on Properties of Prisms and Pyramids with 3D Printing Pens

Lesson on Volume of Oblique Prisms with 3D Printing Pens

This Secondary 1 lesson is an extension of volume of prisms from Primary grades. In this teaching experiment, we focus on students' common misconception of thinking slant sides as the height of the prism. Our objective was to design a group activity with 3D Printing Pens which foster discussion to help students visualise the relationship … Continue reading Lesson on Volume of Oblique Prisms with 3D Printing Pens

Cross sections of prisms and pyramids (Primary 6) with 3D Printing Pens

As we observe that Primary 6 students have difficulties finding cross sections of various 3D solids, we designed a lesson using 3D Printing Pens to support students' visualisation through hands-on, inquiry-based learning. Students were given different regular solids, such as prisms, cylinders, and pyramids. Then, they were invited to use the 3D Printing Pens to … Continue reading Cross sections of prisms and pyramids (Primary 6) with 3D Printing Pens
