Match named or shown three-dimensional geometric shapes to the correct formula for volume or surface area.


Match named or shown three-dimensional geometric shapes to the correct formula for volume or surface area. (Beispiel für die Lösung) Match named or shown three-dimensional geometric shapes to the correct formula for volume or surface area. (Example for this math problem)


A series three-dimensional geometric shapes is shown in text form or as a drawing in a table. Another table shows the formulas for either the volume or the surface areas of each shape, in a random order. The task is to match each shape to the correct formula.

The number of shapes presented is selectable. It can be configured whether the shapes are identified by their names or by an image or both. The type of formula that has to be matched can be chosen.

In the left table with the list of shapes, the lines are numbered with letters. In the right table, they are numbered with numbers. So each letter has to be matched with the correct numbers.

For every shape, it is selectable whether it will appear in the problem statement. Possible shapes are:

- cube/cuboid
- prism
- (square) pyramid
- (regular) tetrahedron
- cylinder
- cone
- sphere
