3D Coordinates
What is the order we use when writing coordinates in 3 Dimensions?
What are the coordinates of the vertices of the cuboid shown in the activity?
Can you move the vertices to make a cuboid that has no square faces?
What are the coordinates of the vertices now?
You can grab the background and spin the image round to get a good look.

Ideas for Teachers
3D coordinates is a small topic that many students find very hard to visualise. With the help of Autograph, we can make it a lot more tangible, so that students can actually move the object and axes around to really see what is going on. Getting them to name coordinates is one thing, but try to get them using the coordinates to make different shapes.
