How a Net is Formed - 3 Dimensional Shapes
Students learn that a net is the shape formed by "unfolding" a
3-dimensional figure, so a net shows all the faces that make up the
surface area of the figure. Students are then asked to determine what
type of 3-dimensional figure can be made from a given net (note that a cylinder has 2 circular bases, a pyramid has triangular faces, a cone

also asked to determine if a given net can be used to make
12:12 (short film)
Synopsis; They say that 11:11 is the time to make a wish. If that is so, what would be special about 12:12..? This short film shows the weird, odd and unusual events that happen to a young man when the clock strikes 12:12. Enjoy!

Historical skills : dating documents
Explains the different dating conventions employed in historical documents.

Illustrative images of items from our collections appear throughout.

Radiolarian Micropalaeontology: Analysing Radiolarian Microfossil Data
Professor Simon Haslett discusses analysing radiolarian microfossil data. Radiolaria are marine single-celled organisms that possess a silica shell and are preserved in the fossil record.
