Students will review:
This chapter helps students review the concepts in a geometric solids unit of a standard high school geometry course. Topics covered include:
- Planes and the polyhedron
- Platonic solids
- Area and volume of prisms, pyramids and cylinders
- Volume and area of cones and spheres
1. Planes and the Polyhedron: Definition and Example
Two types of polygons are planes and polyhedrons, which is a three-dimensional object that, importantly, is without curves. Learn to define the shapes of planes and polyhedrons by their appearance and where real-world examples of them can be found.
2. What Are Platonic Solids? - Definition and Types
A platonic solid is a unique three-dimensional solid, having only five varieties in the entire world. Discover how to define and identify characteristics of these different platonic solids, as well as learn from real-world examples.
3. Prisms: Definition, Area & Volume
Recognized by their base shape, prisms are objects that are three-dimensional and have straight parallel sides, top, and bottom. Discover more about prisms, including their measurements and how to find the surface area and volume.
4. Pyramids: Definition, Area & Volume
In geometry, pyramids are defined as three-dimensional objects with a polygonal base and sides that meet at the same point at the top, which is called the apex. Learn to identify and define pyramid shapes and how to measure their surface area and volume.
5. Cylinder: Definition, Surface Area & Volume
In geometry, the shape of a soda can is an example of a cylinder. Learn how to define cylinders and the formulas used to measure a cylinder's surface area and volume.
6. Cones: Definition, Area & Volume
A cone is defined as a three-dimensional object with a flat base and a single curved side that comes to a point at the top. Learn the formulas for measuring this shape, including surface area and volume.
7. Volume & Surface Area of a Sphere
The volume and surface area of a sphere can be calculated when the sphere's radius is given. Learn about the shape sphere and its radius, and understand how to calculate the volume and surface area of a sphere through some practice problems.
