A sphere

4

What are faces , edges, and vertices?

A face is a flat surface of a 3D object

An edge is where two surfaces meet

Vertices are the corners of a 3D object

 

5

What is the mathematical name of the 3D shape below?

A cuboid

6

What is the formula for finding the volume of a cuboid?

Length times by width times by height ( l x w x h )

12

What is the formula for finding the volume of a cube?

Length x Length x Length or Length cubed ( l3)

13

What is cross sectional area?

Cross sectional area is the area of a thin slice of an obejct.

14

What is a prism?

A 3D shape that has the same cross sectional area all the way through the shape.
