Key Vocabulary / Formulas/ Things to Remember

Surface Area - the sum of the areas of each surface of a three dimensional solid. 
Cone – a solid figure with a circle for a base and a lateral surface that is curved with a vertex or apex. 
Height - The distance from one base of the solid to the other. 
Cross Section – the two-dimensional shape created by slicing a solid figure. 

Base - The geometric figure that distinguishes the prism or pyramid. 
Pyramid – a polyhedron with a polygon base and all lateral faces triangles with a common vertex. 
Net of a solid – The connected two-dimensional shapes that would fold to create the exterior of a three dimensional solid. 
Sphere – A solid figure created by the collection of points equidistant from a center point.
