3 Equilateral triangle Isosceles triangle Scalene triangle Right triangle Obtuse triangle Acute triangle Congruence Contents – click to jump to the page The parts of 3-D shapes Prisms – hexagonal prism More about prisms Some other 3-D shapes

4 Equilateral triangle All three sides equal All three angles equal

5 Isosceles triangle Two equal sides Two equal angles

6 Scalene triangle No equal sides No equal angles

7 Right triangle (sometimes called a Right angled triangle) The two sides next to the right angle may or may not be equal One angle of 90 o Other angles may or may not be equal

8 Obtuse triangle One angle greater than 90 o

9 Acute triangle All angles less than 90 o

10 Congruent triangles A B “Congruent” – means “the same as” Lines, angles, circles and polygons can all have congruence. A B A B Congruent lines Congruent angles Congruent circles Congruent means equal in size and shape but not necessarily in orientation or position

11 The parts of three dimensional shapes Face – the surface of the shape. This shape has 6 faces. Vertex (for one) or vertices (for more than one) – where the edges of the shape meet, this shape has 8 vertices Edge – where two faces join. This shape has 12 edges.

12 Prisms Prisms are named for the shape of their bases This is a hexagonal prism

13 This is a rectangular prism A cube is a special type of rectangular prism where all faces are squares A triangular prism has bases that are triangles More about prisms

14 Other three dimensional shapes A cylinder has two parallel congruent circular faces. A pyramid has one polygonal base (not necessarily square) and lateral triangular faces that meet at a common vertex called the apex. Apex A cone is similar to a pyramid but has a circular base and so only one curved face. A sphere is made up of all the points in space that are the same fixed distance from its centre.
