Space Visualization Test on Prism Edges

When a prism is unfolded into a net, determining the way that the edges are connected requires some spatial thinking. The number in a triangle labels its thick edge. This Demonstration tests your space visualization by asking for the label of the thick edge marked by a red "?".
