Properties of 3-D Shapes

3-D shapes have features like faces (flat or curved), edges (straight or curved) and corners (vertices). These features are the properties of a 3D shape.

A property is something that a 3-D shape always has. For example, a sphere is always round; so this is a property of a sphere

Comparing Properties

The number of faces, edges and corners are properties of some shapes that help compare these shapes. Sometimes, two shapes have the same number of sides, edges and corners but they look different.

Look at these two shapes. They look different, but they have the same number of faces, edges and corners.

A cube has all square faces, but a cuboid has rectangular faces and the opposite faces are equal.
