Planes and the Polyhedron: Definition and Example

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.

What Are Platonic Solids? - Definition and Types

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.

Prisms: Definition, Area & Volume

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.

Pyramids: Definition, Area & 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.

Cylinder: Definition, Surface Area & 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.

Cones: Definition, Area & 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.

Volume & Surface Area of a Sphere

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.
