### MEAP Preparation - Grade 5 Mathematics3.9 Solids Shapes (Pyramids)

 A pyramid is any three-dimensional polyhedron where the faces other than the base are triangular and meet at one point, called the vertex or apex. The base of a pyramid can be any polygon: a square, or a triangle, leading to four or three non-base faces. Kinds of pyramids: Pyramids have different appearance depending on their base. Each segment of the base is elongated to form a triangle. If a pyramid is formed from an octagonal base, then 8 triangles are formed. In other words a pyramid is a polyhedron with a single base and lateral faces that are all triangular. All lateral edges of a pyramid meet at a single point, or vertex. Example: The base is a heptagon (7 sides) Answer: heptagonal pyramid Directions: Answer the following questions. Also draw at least five examples of pyramids on your own.
