Open-ended activities can be a powerful and engaging tool, promoting authentic learning and opportunities for formative as well as summative assessment. This article presents an activity that shows how an open-ended task--with a variety of solution strategies and multiple correct answers--can be an effective educational activity which also offers insights into student thinking and learning. In this activity, students use isometric drawings to examine 3D shapes and scaling. (Contains 4 figures.)
