This animated Math Shorts video helps students understand the two-dimensional figures that result from slicing solid three-dimensional figures. The video demonstrates this using cylinders and right rectangular pyramids as the three-dimensional figures. In the accompanying classroom activity, students create and slice play dough figures and then describe the resulting shapes.
