3D Geometric Shapes
Reference Guide

3D geometric shapes are illustrated bellow.  Click on the one you wish to explore more.  Please understand that there is an assumed knowledge of 2D geometry to understand this section.





Your child starts their exploration of 3d geometric shapes the moment they try to push that square peg through a round hole!

Though identification of common figures such as the sphere, cylinder and cuboid starts in kindergarten - new knowledge is explored in most grades.  But you don't (and shouldn't) have to wait.  Geometry is so visual, most kids love it!

Each of the 3D-figures illustrated bellow expand into full tutorials.  Not only do you get the basic information, such as volume and surface area formula, but each of this expands into a 'how does it happen?' section.

I hope you enjoy exploring these pages.  If you have any suggestions on how I can make this site better - please contact me.!

That way, I can ensure I am creating the information you want!

Cylinder

Cuboid

Sphere

Cone

Platonic Solids

Prism

Pyramid

I am sure you will find all the information and worksheets you need here, however if there is anything you cannot find please don't hesitate to contact me.

I love to hear from my readers, and with a little feedback and a few suggestions I can make this a great resource for parents, teachers and tutors alike.

Be sure to explore everything on this site starting at the home page.
