Every Question Helps You Learn

This math quiz will teach you the Spanish names for shapes like cubes and cones.

# Math: It's All About Shapes!

In this Spanish Difficult Review quiz you will be looking at math or, more specifically, about different kinds of shapes. Literally everything in this world, and outside of this world, has a shape. Shapes are part of math and they are important when it comes to measurements. Since as early as the first grade, even sooner, you have been learning about shapes so they should not be new to you. However, knowing how to say those shapes in Spanish is new.

Not all shapes are included here, and some you have previously learned in either the Spanish Easy Review quiz series or the Spanish Medium Review quiz series. All the same, this quiz has combined a good number of the more commonly known and used shapes. Please study each Spanish shape word closely. Some will be very easy to remember as they are virtually the same as they are in English (but pay attention to the difference in pronunciation).
