- math investigation of painted cubes introduction ===== i was given a brief to investigate the number of faces on a cube, which measured 20 small cubes by 20 small cubes by 20 small cubes (20 x 20 x 20) to do this, i had to imagine that there was a very large cube, which had had its outer surface painted red. Investigation 4 ace assignment choices problem 41 cubes painted on two faces, which means the large cube must have the dimensions of 13-by-13-by-13, with 2,197. A cube made from unit cubes is spray painted on all faces, when deconstructed into its unit cubes, how many of these have 3, 2, 1, 0 faces painted this classic problem is full of pattern and algebra investigations and yet the students don't have to be experienced algebraists to 'get it. For 0 sides painted, we found that if n = (the number blocks on one row or column of the cube), then (n-2)^3 is the number of cubes with 0 sides painted for 1 side painted, we found that the pattern was 6(n - 2)^2 = the number of cubes with 1 side painted.

Let's take different sizes of cube and work out painted faces and put all results into the table sonow we can see some patterns for the '3 painted faces' we can say that it's '8' everytime, because there are 4 angles in the cube everytime a(n) = 8 for '2 painted faces' we have to add '12' to. Download a pdf version of this chart the following table list the names and brief descriptions of each unit in cmp3 each grade and course meet the ccssm for grades 6, 7, 8 and algebra 1.
