The difference between prisms &
           pyramids.
   “It’s all about how you slice
                it!”
Pyramids and prisms are specific
     kinds of polyhedra.
The word polyhedra is the plural
     form of polyhedron.
A polygon is a 2-dimensional
          shape.
A polyhedron is a 3-dimensional
           shape.
Presto! A triangular prism!
Presto! A triangular pyramid!
Presto! A square prism!
Presto! A square pyramid!
A prism is made of congruent
           shapes.
A pyramid is made of similar
 shapes that get smaller and
          smaller.
If you know the names of
common polygons, then naming
a prism or pyramid will be easy
            for you.
Look at the polygon on the
  bottom of the shape.
This polygon is a rectangle.
This shape is a rectangular prism.
This shape is a rectangular
        pyramid.
This is a pentagon.
This is a pentagonal prism.
This is a pentagonal pyramid.
This is an octagon.
This is an octagonal prism.
This is an octagonal pyramid.
If you know the common
  polygons and if you know the
difference between a prism and a
pyramid, naming these shapes is
   ...
The only unique name that you
have to remember is the “cube.”
A cube is a specific kind of
    rectangular prism.
A rectangular prism that has 6
congruent faces is called a cube.
A rectangular prism that has 6
congruent faces is called a cube.
A rectangular prism that has 6
congruent faces is called a cube.
A rectangular prism that has 6
congruent faces is called a cube.
A rectangular prism that has 6
congruent faces is called a cube.
A rectangular prism that has 6
congruent faces is called a cube.
