Presentation Transcript

### Surface Area and Nets

• Polyhedron: a 3-dimensional object, or solid, whose faces are polygons

• Face: a flat surface on a solid

• Edge: segments joining faces together

• Vertex: corner; the point where 3 or more faces meet

• Prism: a polyhedron whose bases are congruent and parallel

• Prisms are named for the shape of their bases.

• Pyramid: a polyhedron that has a polygonal base but comes to a point

• Pyramids are named after the shape of their base

• Net: a flat figure that can be folded to form a closed three-dimensional object (solid).

• We can use nets to help figure out the surface area of a solid shape

• http://www.learner.org/interactives/geometry/area_surface.html

• Rectangular Prism

• Triangular Prism

• Square Pyramid

• Surface Area: the sum of the areas of all the faces of a 3D figure

• To find the surface area of any shape, you can follow the process described below:

• Draw a net of the polyhedron.

• Calculate the area of each face.

• Add up the area of all the faces.
