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 here.

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!
