Identifying Shapes Worksheets
How to Identify Two and ThreeDimensional Shapes  There are two types of shapes in geometry: twodimensional and threedimensional shapes. Twodimensional shapes are the ones that have a length and a height and exist in a twoaxis planes. Threedimensional shapes are those that exist in the threeaxis plane, have a length, height, and breadth. Some examples of twodimensional shapes include circle, square, rectangle, and triangle. Some examples of threedimensional shapes include cubes, cuboid, sphere, prisms, and cylinders. This is how you identify two and threedimensional shapes.

What's the Point?
Bumper stickers in the math parking lot:
"The only angle from which to approach a problem is the TRYangle!"
The word "square" is derived from the Latin "ex quadron"
which is also the root of the words squadron or squad, words which refer
to troops drawn up in a battle square. "To square off" is to assume a posture
of defense or offense.
