Consequently, what shape is at the base of a cylinder?

A cylinder is a three-dimensional figure with a pair of parallel and

**congruent**circular ends, or bases. A cylinder has a single curved side that forms a**rectangle**when laid out**flat**. A cylinder has bases in the shape of __________________________.What are the shapes of solids?

For example, building blocks are often cubes or rectangular prisms. They have six faces, or flat surfaces. Other familiar

**solid shapes**are spheres, which children might recognize as being shaped like balls; cones, like ice cream cones or traffic cones; and cylinders, which are shaped like cans.What are the 3 dimensions of a shape?

In geometry the most common curved solids are cylinders, cones, spheres and tori (the plural for torus). Common Three-

**Dimensional Shapes**with Curves: Cylinder. Cone. A cylinder has the same cross-section from one end to the other.
