Prancing Prisms Math Help Game Tips:
- In this game, you name the different prisms.
Get three correct answers to make the prisms prance!
- A prism is a solid having two ends, which are parallel faces of the same size and shape,
and having parallelograms for the other lateral faces.
- In a 'right prism' the lateral (side) faces are rectangles.
- The end face of a prism is also called a 'base'. Prisms are often pictured standing on one base.
The height (altitude) of a prism is the perpendicular distance between the parallel end faces.
- When the ends are triangles, the prism is called a 'triangular prism'.
- When the ends are quadrilaterals, the prism is called a 'quadrangular prism'.
- When the ends are pentagons, the prism is called a 'pentagonal prism'.
- When the ends are hexagons, the prism is called a 'hexagonal prism'.
- When the ends are octagons, the prism is called an 'octagonal prism'.
- The Volume (capacity) of a prism can be found by multiplying its 'base Area' times its 'Height'.
- See the other SliderMath games for more about the volume of solids.
