Definitions Rec. is rectangular Tri is triangular Face is a flat surface on a polyhedron An edge is a line segment where 2 faces meet. Vertex is a point where 3 or more edges meet in a solid figure.
The Cube The cube has SIX faces which are a FLAT surfaces on a solid figure or a polyhedron The Cube also has 12 edges which is a line segment where 2 faces meet. And don’t forget the vertices! The cube has 8 of them!!! Vertices are also known as corners.
The Cone The cone you may know as the ice cream cone! The cone has 1 face at the bottom. The cone also has 1 You might see these outside with vertex. Honor Patrol!!! A funny thing about the cone is that it has 0 edges!!! This is an ice cream cone!!
The Sphere It’s the round one that looks like a ball. It has 0 vertex, 0 faces and 0 edges. Here are a couple of examples
The Cylinder If you have seen a soup can or a soda can then you have probably seen a cylinder. The cylinder has 2 faces on the top and on the This is an example of a bottom. cylinder!! There is 0 edges even though there is 2 faces the never meet to make an edge. This object was found in our own office!! Shapes are everywhere
The triangular pyramid The tri. Pyramid has 4 faces!! It also has 4 vertex!!! The tri. Pyramid has 6 edges! These can sometimes be hard to find!
The Rectangular Pyramid The rec. pyramid has 5 faces. Like any other geometric solid it has vertex, it has 5 of them! This is a rec. pyramid. It has 8 edges.
The Triangular prism The Triangular prism has 5 faces!! It has 6 vertex and 7 edges!! Like the tri. Pyramid it can be hard to find
The Rectangular Prism The Rectangular Prism has 6 faces and 8 vertex. It also has 12 edges!! This is an example of a rec. pyramid. You may find one in your house!
