The part of the KS3 Maths syllabus that is commonly called 'Shapes' also deals with measurements. This quiz introduces you to some of the words you will need for this section. It will help in getting you started in the world of shapes.
Shapes can be 2 or 3 dimensional. Rectangles and squares are 2D shapes. We call them polygons and, because their angles are the same at each corner, we call them regular polygons. Cuboids, pyramids and cubes are 3D shapes, or polyhedrons. There are many words used to describe polygons and polyhedrons, such as angles, area, faces, radius and circumference. But what do these words mean? You will have learned about them in your classes; now test how much you have remembered.
Read each of the following questions carefully. Make sure that you understand them before choosing your answers. Good luck!
