This project stems from a project where the students made nets(an ODE term) and folded them into actual geometric solids.  the assignment I gave the students is here.

Looking above you can see some of the paper models the students drew, cut out,

and then folded into various geometric shapes.

Another part of the assignment was to assign each face of the solid a dark, gray and light face.  The students used various types of dry media, natural charcoal, charcoal pencils,  and ebony pencils.  they learned that some of the media makes better dark blacks than others.
