Worksheet Overview

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
