Which box does this cylinder go in?
00:00:06.400 --> 00:00:08.800
Let’s look at the two boxes that we’ve been given.
00:00:10.520 --> 00:00:15.470
The first box is a group of two-dimensional shapes, by which I mean flat shapes.
00:00:17.080 --> 00:00:22.140
There’s a rectangle, a circle, and a six-sided shape, a hexagon.
00:00:23.890 --> 00:00:26.160
Now let’s look at the second box.
00:00:27.500 --> 00:00:30.600
All of the shapes in this box are three-dimensional.
00:00:32.140 --> 00:00:38.360
Their shapes would actually have some depth to them if you were to pick them up rather than just being flat pieces of paper.
00:00:40.180 --> 00:00:47.000
Firstly, there’s a rectangular prism or cuboid, which looks like it could also be a cube if all of its lengths are the same size.
00:00:48.470 --> 00:00:50.350
There’s also a cone and a sphere.
00:00:52.100 --> 00:00:55.100
Now let’s consider which box this cylinder goes in.
00:00:57.170 --> 00:00:59.540
A cylinder is a three-dimensional shape.
00:00:59.730 --> 00:01:01.530
It has some depth to it.
00:01:01.780 --> 00:01:06.910
You could probably find lots of cylinders if you look around your house, like, for example, food tins.
00:01:08.840 --> 00:01:13.060
The cylinder, therefore, belongs in the box with the other three-dimensional shapes.
