Term | Definition |
---|---|

Area | The number of square units needed to cover a given surface |

Perimeter | The distance around a polygon |

Circumference | The distance around a circle |

Surface Area | The sum of the areas of the faces or surfaces of a three-dimensional figure |

Prism | A polyhedron that has two congruent polygon shaped bases and other faces that are parallelograms |

Volume | The number of cubic units needed to fill a given space |

Parallelogram | A quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel sides |

Diameter | A line segment that passes through the center of a circle and has end-points on the circle or the length of that segment |

Radius | A line segment with one end-point at the center of a circle and the other end-point on the circle or that length of the segment |
