Maths hidden faces Introduction

In this coursework I would be investigating the number of hidden faces in different cubes and cuboids. I would provide predictions to make sure I get the right results. After that I would provide diagrams of the cubes and I would explain how I found it. In each section of a set of cubes I would provide formula’s that I would find. I would also give information that the pattern carries on.

The reason why I am doing this investigation about cubes is because to find the hidden faces and total faces which would be added near the diagrams. I am going to increase one dimension at a time while holding the other one the same. I will start by holding the width and the height by one while increasing the depth by one.

Moving on to deeper investigation I would investigate cubes that have more cubes and rows of cubes which would lead to more accurate results. I would again provide total faces and hidden faces. The reason why I would go into such deeper investigation is because to get more information about the cubes with more of them and check if the pattern carries on.

Overall of my coursework I would provide a lot of information about what I have done and how I have done it.

Middle

I found the formulas for particular dimensions of the cuboids. However some formulas are inconsistent as they vary with the size of the cubes. Each formula only works for a certain dimension numbers and it can’t be used to find the number of hidden faces in any cube. These formulas do not help me to find the total numbers of hidden faces in any cubes as they all keep hanging and varying. I cannot see a prospect of finding the general formula for the total number of hidden faces in any cube so I am going to stop drawing any more cubes.

Conclusion

This student written piece of work is one of many that can be found in our GCSE Hidden Faces and Cubes section.
