Match the slices

Another complication to think about is that most of the time you won't know which direction a microscope slide "should" be facing -- which way is up. In the applet below, try to match the 2-D slices to the 3-D object.  Type the number of each cut next to the slice it produces, and remember that the slices may be upside down, sideways, or slanted.

Right answers turn blue, wrong answers turn red and get corrected.
