How to Calculate Perimeters: Part 1

How to Calculate Perimeters: Part 1

Today we are going to learn to calculate perimeters of geometric figures. But first, let’s start with the definition of a perimeter. When we say perimeter we are referring to the length of the polygon’s outline. Here you can review the most common types of polygons. The length of a polygon’s outline can be calculated […]

Trapezium-Trapezoid: Definition, Types and Exercises

Trapezium-Trapezoid: Definition, Types and Exercises

In today’s post, we are going to study a bit of geometry. We will focus on one flat figure: the trapezium (UK – trapezoid).   There is considerable confusion over the definition of ‘trapezoid’ and ‘trapezium’ due to differences in the British and US versions. As you can see from the table above, the meanings […]

What Are Solid Geometric Shapes or Bodies?

What Are Solid Geometric Shapes or Bodies?

Surely, you know about flat geometric figures so today we are going to talk about solid geometric shapes which are also known as geometric shapes or bodies. These figures have three dimensions – length, depth, and height. In other words, these figures have volume and we can say that they occupy a place in space. Principal […]

Curiosities of Some Geometric Figures

Curiosities of Some Geometric Figures

We’re used to working with geometric figures. We find them outlining our notebooks, textbooks, or the screen of our tablets and computers. But today we’re going to look beyond these everyday items and discover the mysteries that some geometric figures hide, and how humans have used or adapted them for their own needs. In this […]

Geometry and 2D Shapes with the Help of a Tangram

Geometry and 2D Shapes with the Help of a Tangram

In today’s post we’re going to talk about Geometry and and 2D figures.  To help us, we’re going to use an old Chinese game, Tangram. The Tangram is a puzzle made up of 7 pieces: a parallelogram (rhomboid), a square, and 5 triangles. The objective of this game is to create shapes using the 7 pieces. The […]
