Abstract

What shapes do you get when you spin a cube on one of its vertices? This article explores the algebraic aspects of a spinning cube and establishes equations for the two cones and the hyperboloid using secondary school mathematics. Both the analysis and the verification take advantage of dynamic mathematics learning technologies.
