Face
A flat surface.
Edge
The segment that is intersection of two faces.
Vertex
The point that is the intersection of three or more faces.
Prism
A 3-D figure formed by two parallel and congruent polygonal bases which are connected by rectangular faces.
Cylinder
A 3-D figure formed by two parallel and congruent circular bases which are connected by a curved surface.
Pyramid
A 3-D figure formed by a polygonal base and triangular faces that meet at a common vertex.
Cone
A 3-D figured formed by a circular base and a curved surface that connects the base to a vertex.
Cube
A prism with six square faces. All other prisms and pyramids are named according to their base shape.
Net
A 2-D digram of the surfaces and a 3-D figure that can be folded together to form the 3-D object.
Cross-Section
The intersection of the 3-D figure and a plane.
Lateral Area
The area all the non-bases.
Surface Area
The lateral area and base area added together. The area of a 3-D object's net.
Height of a Prism/Cyclinder
The distance between the bases.
Height (altitude) of a Pyramid/Cone
The perpendicular segment from the vertex straight down to the center of the base.
Slant Height of a Pyramid
The distance from the vertex to the midpoint of an edge of the base.
Slant Height of a Cone
The distance from the vertex to a point on the circumference of the base.
Volume
The amount of space an object takes up.
Sphere
A 3-D figure in which every point is the same distance away from a center point.
Great Circle
The circle that slices a sphere into two hemispheres, like the equator.
Similar Solids
3-D figures that have exactly the same shape but not the same size. Two 3-D figures are similar if the ratio of their corresponding linear measurements are equal.
Types of Linear Measurements
Length, Width, Height, Slant Height, Radius, Diameter, Perimeter, and Circumference
