# 3D in Year 6!

As part of our measurement (Area, Perimeter and Volume), we classified and categorised 3D shapes based on their properties. We created a double page spread about our facts!

Challenge: What is the difference between a hedron and prism? Do any 3D shapes share any similarities?

Challenge: What is the difference between a hedron and prism?
A prism has two identical bases that are parallel. A hedron has one base. A prism is named for the shape of its base. Each flat side of a polyhedron is called a face.
Do any 3D shapes share any similarities?
One 3D shape that has similarities are cube and a cuboid

The difference between a prism and hedron is that prism is (geometry) a polyhedron with parallel ends of the same size and shape, the other faces being parallelogram-shaped sides while polyhedron is (geometry) a solid figure with many flat faces and straight edges.

3. A Hedron is a three dimensional shape which is a geometrical solid with faces and polygons , also known as a polyhedron .
A prism is a geometrical shape with two opposite faces .

4. James H.

Prism
2 opposition shapes facing the opposite sides

It has polygons as the face(also known as polyhedrons

5. Raihaan N.

A polyhedron with two polygonal faces lying in parallel planes and with the other faces parallelograms.
A Hedron is a three dimensional shape that has flat faces which each one is a polygon.

6. The difference between a Hedron and a prism are:

A prism is a polyhedron with two polygonal faces lying in parallel planes and with the other faces parallelograms.

A hedron is a 3D shape that has polygons as faces which are commonly known as polyhedron.

As a noun prism is a polyhedron with parallel ends of the same size and shape, the other faces being parallelogram-shaped sides. But the other one is not English

What is the difference between a hedron and prism?
Prism has rectangular surfaces but hedrons are like pyramid

Do any 3D shapes share any similarities?
Square based pyramid and trianglular based pyramid

The similarities between hedron’s and prisms are they are both 3D and not 2D.
The difference is they have different names.
A Herron is an three-dimensional shape which faces are polygons and is known as a polyhedron. This term comes from the Greek words poly, which means “many,” and hedron, which means “face.” So, quite literally, a polyhedron is a three-dimensional object with many faces.
A prism is a 3-dimensional shape with two identical shapes facing each other. These identical shapes are called “bases”. The bases can be a triangle, square, rectangle or any other polygon. Other faces of a prism are parallelograms or rectangles.

What is a prism?
A prism is a 3-Dimensional shape that has two opposite shapes facing. the opposite sides.
___________________________________________________________

A hadron is a 3-Dimensional shape that has polygons as the faces (also known as polyhedrons.

11. Abdullah A.

Cuboid and a cube have 6 faces and 8 vertices. The difference between prism and hadron is that hadron is more solid then prism.

The difference between hedron and prisms:
Hedron
This is a three-dimensional shape which faces are polygons. Additionally, this is known as a polyhedron. This etymology comes from the Greek words poly, which means many and hedron which means faces. So a poly hedron or hedron is a 3D shape with many faces.

Prisms

Challenge 1
What is the difference between a hedron and prism
Is that prism is geometry a polyhedron with parallel ends of the same size and shape the other faces being parallelogram shaped sides while polyhedron is geometry a solid figure with many flat faces and straight edges.
Challenge 2
The main difference between 2D shapes and 3D shapes are their dimensions.
