CROSS-SECTION- THE SHAPE YOU GET WHEN CUTTING STRAIGHT ACROSS AN OBJECT
PARALLEL- LINES IN A PLANE THAT DO NOT MEET
PERPENDICULAR- RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN TWO LINES WHICH MEET AT A RIGHT ANGLE
FACE- FLAT PLANAR SURFACE
EDGE- LINE WHERE TWO SURFACES MEET
VERTEX- CORNER OF AN INTERSECTION
BASE- SIDE OF A PLANE FIGURE OR FACE OF A SOLID
ANGLE- FIGURE FORMED BY TWO RAYS OR LINE SEGMENTS
DIAGONAL- CROSSING FROM ONE CORNER TO ANOTHER
PLANE- FLAT TWO-DIMENSIONAL SURFACE
RECTANGULAR PRISM- A 3D SHAPE THAT HAS 6 FACES, 8 VERTICES, AND 12 EDGES
RIGHT SQUARE PYRAMID- A 3D SHAPE THAT HAS 5 FACES, 5 VERTICES, AND 8 EDGES
Lesson A
In this lesson you will learn how
to describe the cross sections
of a rectangular prism by
slicing at different angles.

Interpreting a Perspective Drawing
Looking at the prism straight
on, the top face looks like a
parallelogram.
When the top face is straight
up, you can see that it is
actually a rectangle.
A Cross Section is the two-dimensional
shape you get when you cut a threedimensional shape with a plane.
The Plane can be
perpendicular or
parallel.
Perpendicular
Planes
intersect to
form right
angles.
Parallel
Planes
never
intersect

Lesson B
In this lesson you will learn how
to describe the cross sections of
a right square pyramid by slicing
at different angles.
Review
Right Square Pyramid
From Lesson A,
recall what a
plane is and
how it relates to
cross sections.
View slide five
for reference.
