Hello, It would be wonderful if this could be altered so that is says the word ‘a curved line’ instead of ‘a curved edge’ for the oval and circle shapes (edges are on 3D objects). Also I would love an editable version!

This is great. Is there a 3D shapes version also?

Resource Updates

  • Removed the text specifying that a right-angled triangle has two equal sides. While this right-angled triangle has two equal sides, not all do.
