10.1 Areas of Parallelograms and Trapezoids


Base of a parallelogram- the length of any of it's sides

Height of a parallelogram- perpendicular distance between the base and the opposite side

Bases of Trapezoids- are it's two parallel sides

Height of Trapezoids- perpendicular distance between the bases

10.2 Areas of Circles


Area- a flat, or plane figure is the number of unit squares that can be contained within it.

Circle- the set of points that are equidistant from a special point in the plane.

Radius- half a the diameter

Circumference- computed by multiplying the diameter by pi

Pi- It expresses the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of a circle

10.3 Three-Dimensional Firgures


Solid- three-dimensional figure that encloses a part of space

Polyhedron- a solid that is enclosed by polygons

Face- that form a polyhedron

Prism- a polyhedron, 2 congruent bases that lie in parallel planes

Pyramid- polyhedron, one base

Cylinder- solid, with 2 congruent circular bases

Cone- solid, with 1 circular base

Sphere- solid, formed by all points in space that are the same distance

Edges- segments where faces of a polyhedron meet

Vertex- a point where three or edges meet

10.4 Surface Areas of Prisms and Cylinders


Net- two-dimensional pattern that forms a solid when it is folded

Surface Area- of a polyhedron is the sum of the areas of it's faces

10.5 Surface Areas of Pyramids and Cones


Slant height- l of a regular pyramid is the height of a lateral face, that is, any face that is not the base

10.6 Volume of Prisms and Cylinders


Volume: a solid is a measure of the amount of space it occupies

measured in cubic units

10.7 Volume of Pyramids and Cones


Pyramid- polyhedron, one base

Cone- solid, with 1 circular base

Volume- a solid is a measure of the amount of space it occupies

measured in cubic units
