All vertical and horizontal cross sections of any one cube are all the same size and shape. What about vertical and horizontal cross sections of a pyramid? Are they all the same size? Are they all the same shape? Discuss why or why not.

  1. the horizontal sections are the same shape as the base of the pyramid, but of different sizes.

    What do you think of the vertical sections? As with the cube, I assume the vertical sections are parallel to a side of the base.
