# Chapter 11: Surface Area and Volume

Difficulty Level: Basic Created by: CK-12

## Introduction

In this chapter we extend what we know about two-dimensional figures to three-dimensional shapes. First, we will define the different types of 3D shapes and their parts. Then, we will find the surface area and volume of prisms, cylinders, pyramids, cones, and spheres.

Chapter Outline

## Summary

This chapter presents three-dimensional geometric figures beginning with polyhedrons, regular polyhedrons, and an explanation of Euler's Theorem. Three-dimensional figures represented as cross sections and nets are discussed. Then the chapter branches out to the formulas for surface area and volume of prisms, cylinders, pyramids, cones, spheres and composite solids. The relationship between similar solids and their surface areas and volumes are explored.
