You have studied various two-dimensional shapes like circles, squares, and triangles in Geometry. In Class 7 you also studied three-dimensional shapes like cones, cylinders, and cuboids. You are familiar with the idea of these three-dimensional shapes occupying some space, depending on their shape and size. Now, in class 8 maths, visualising solid shapes will be our focus.
Do these solid shapes appear the same when seen from any side? How do we ensure that when you describe a solid shape to your friend, they also visualize it in the same way? What happens if they don’t? We will be working to find an answer to all these questions. Here, visualizing solid shapes’ class 8 syllabus is broken down into the following subtopics, to make it easier for you to understand.
