In a previous class I took we had discussed how to create nets of different geometric shapes. Then in class we also discussed making nets in order to create a square. Although there are many different ways to create a net for each shape these are the nets I came up with. I created nets for the following shapes (which can be seen below): square pyramid, triangular pyramid, triangular prism, right cylinder, hexagonal prism, and a cone.

These look ok, except the pyramid, which would surprise me if it worked. To make an exemplar, you'd want to add more. Like your thought process, or pics of finished models and what did you get out of making them, what mathematical properties of the solids determine the nets, etc.
