Drawing 3D shapes on isometric dot paper

In the recent Year 8 exam at my school, one of the questions required students to draw 3 dimensional (3D) shapes on isometric dot paper. More than 50% of the students were not able to draw the 3D shape. Drawing 3D shapes on isometric dot paper or any other type of paper does need practice. It also requires you to visualise the shape in 3D.

I decided to give my students more practice with drawing 3D shapes. Print at least 2 copies of the isometric paper by clicking on the link below.

Remember to use pencil and ruler when drawing and don’t give up if you don’t get it the first time round. Try until you get it.
