Dimensions

Lyrics and Performance by Vicki Young
Melody: "Alouette"

What is a line segment? What is its dimension?

Donít you know that itís dimension ONE!

Line segments form the sides of many figures.

Sum to find perimeter, use units only once.

 

What is a polygon? What is its dimension?

Soon you will see, dimension now is TWO!

Length and height create a square perspective.

Multiply for area, square units make it true.

 

Whatís a polyhedron? What is its dimension?

Can you believe that weíre now up to THREE!

Length, height, and depth make units that are cubic.

Volume is space that you canít even see.
