### 1. Combined Figures: Perimeter, Area, and Volume

Combined figures are shapes that are composed of a combination of simpler shapes. Explore how to find the perimeter, area, and volume of a combined figure.

### 2. 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.

### 3. Estimating the Area of Irregular Shapes

With an irregular shape, it may be difficult to calculate area in the same way as basic shapes. Learn how to estimate the area of irregular shapes by dividing them into common shapes or approximating.
