When we are dealing with 3D shapes, we have to be able to find the amount of vertices,faces and edges.
Face: A face in a 3D shape is one of the sides of a shape - it is an area.
Edge: An edge is where two faces meet - it is a line
Vertex: A vertex is the corner of a shape, it can be called a point. The plural of vertex is vertices
Find the amount of faces, edges and vertices for a cube.
When you are completing these questions, remember that there will be hidden bits that you can't see,
Faces: We can immediatly see 3 faces, but we have to remember that there are 3 on the back that we can't see.
Edges. There are 9 we can see and another 3 we can't - This gives 12 edges.
Vertices: There are 7 we can see and one hidden away at the back. This gives 8 overall
