## What are Shapes in English?

Shapes are geometric figures or patterns that an outline follows. Shapes are commonly drawn (whether with ink, pencil, or digitally), but they also exist in real life. When people hear the phrase “shapes,” they frequently visualize 2D (two-dimensional, or flat) representations, so the majority of the objects presented in this lesson will be 2D shapes, while some will also be 3D.

## 2D Shapes Name in Maths

In maths, 2d shapes can be defined as the plane or flat figures that can be drawn on a flat (or plane) surface or a piece of paper. All the 2d shapes have various parameters such as area and perimeter. Some of the 2d shapes contain sides and corners, whereas some have curved boundaries.

CIRCLE | A circle is an equally round shape. See the lid of a jar, flat, from above. That is a circle. The wheels on a car are circular, as well. So are the holes in most lined paper and notebooks. |

OVAL | An oval is basically a circle that’s been a little squished. The cups of over-the-ear headphones are generally referred to as oval. So is the profile of an egg. Some make a distinction between circles that have been squished in the middle versus circles that have been squished at the top, the former being called an ellipse, but common usage treats both as ovals. |

RECTANGLE | A rectangle is a shape with four sides, made up of two sets of parallel lines, with four right angles (90 degree angles; picture a capital L). It doesn’t matter whether the sets of sides are the same length. Picture a plain piece of printing paper. This is a rectangle, with one set of sides (generally the top and bottom) shorter than the other set of sides (generally the left and right). |

SQUARE | A square is a very specific type of rectangle, one with four equal sides. Some boxes have a square footprint. Origami paper is square. |

TRIANGLE | A triangle is a shape with three straight sides. These sides can be any length, with any degree of angle, as long as the three sides are joined at their ends. Many warning signs are triangular. A slice of a round pizza is mostly triangular (the crust is a little too rounded to be perfect). |

PENTAGON | A pentagon is a shape with five sides. A basic drawing of a house, with two lines for the roof, a line for each side, and a line for the bottom is generally a pentagon. |

## 3D Shapes Name in Maths

A three-dimensional shape is an object or solid figure that has three dimensions—length, breadth, and height—and is referred to as three-dimensional in geometry. Three-dimensional shapes have height, which is equivalent to thickness or depth, unlike two-dimensional shapes. These objects are sometimes referred to as 3-D forms because three dimensions can also be written as 3-D. Every 3-D shape takes up space, which is measured by volume.

SPHERE | A sphere is a 3D circle, like a ball. |

CUBE | A cube is a 3D square, like a box. |

PYRAMID | A pyramid is a 3D triangle. The giant structures in Egypt are pyramids, as is the Luxor in Las Vegas. |

CUBOID | A cuboid is a 3-dimensional solid rectangular structure that contains six rectangular faces, 12 edges, and eight vertices. |

CYLINDER | A cylinder is a 3-dimensional solid structure whose curved cylindrical surface is perpendicularly connected with two parallel circular bases. The center of the circular base is called the axis of the cylinder. |

## Shapes Name and Its Sides in Maths

Shapes and their sides are shared in the below table. It will be easy for kids to understand which shape contains how many sides.

TRIANGLE | 3 sides of equal length. | |

SQUARE | 4 sides of equal length. | |

RECTANGLE | 2 opposite sides are of equal length. | |

CIRCLE | No sides. |
