how to mathematically prove that a cube consists of 11 nets?

My math teacher and numerous online websites state that a cube has 11 nets. But none of them give a mathematical proof as to why that is. I believe this statement is not important enough for people to spend time into forming a proper proof. But I wonder if any of you math experts have the leisure to do so.

One of my tutees gets assignments to calculate surface areas using "nets." 
It can assist in visualizing a three dimensional object on a two-dimensional plane.
Yet "unfolding" a triangular prism or a hexagonal cylinder can be daunting.
