This eBook introduces 2D planar and 3D solids (shapes) and their corners (vertices), faces, edges, lines and planes of symmetry and order of rotational symmetry. It introduces the student to regular and irregular polygons, quadrilaterals, triangles, circles, nets of solids, cuboids, prisms and cylinders including formulating the algebra that describes their various areas, perimeters and volumes.

This eBook is part of our range of Key Stage 3 (KS3) maths eBooks that are fully aligned with the UK Governments national curriculum.

Our Key Stage 3 (KS3) maths eBooks comprise three principle sections. These are, notably:

•Number and Algebra

•Geometry and Measures

•Handling Data

In addition, there exists a Publications Guide.

Our maths eBooks are produced such as that as well as a Publications Guide, and three principle publications corresponding to the principle sections (Number and Algebra, Geometry and Measures and Handling Data) there are individual modules produced within each principle section which are published as eBooks.

2D Shapes and 3D Solids is a module within the Geometry and Measures principle section our Key Stage 3 (KS3) publications. It is one module out of a total of six modules in that principle section, the others being:

•Loci, Constructions and 3D Co-ordinates

•Angles, Bearings and Scale Drawings

•Transformations

•Pythagoras’ Theorem, Trigonometry and Similarity

•Measures and Measurements
