Instructions for Use

Rotating Houses allows students to rotate a 3-D model to match a certain 2-D view.

Look at the model of a 3-D structure. Predict how you might rotate the structure to create the side view shown. Test your prediction by using your mouse to click and drag the structure until it looks like the side view shown. Was your prediction correct?

Click “OK” to see if you were correct. Click “Next Question” to try another structure.
