Prefixes and Suffixes
The prefix can provide the number of sides, and the suffix can provide the dimension, such as 2D (-gon) or 3D (-hedron).
Dimensions, Axis, Coordinates
1D, 1 Dimension: Along a line, the 1 axis, has 1 number of coordinates. (x)
2D, 2 Dimensions: Using 2 axis or lines, usually called x and y, has two numbers for coordinates. (x, y)
3D, 3 Dimensions: Using 3 axis or lines, usually x, y, z. Use 3 coordinate numbers. (x, y, z)
That's great, but who cares? Here are real world examples:
Maps and location services require different coordinate systems and knowledge.
Milling machine operators require knowledge of part geometry and machine coordinate systems.
Architects can use geometry artistically too.
Shapes and Patterns in Nature
When Geometric shapes match nature, is it coincidence?
