Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Daniel, a student:

I am in year 3 and have been given some homework to do with my mum.
Question is: my shape has two circular faces and one curved face. It has two edges and no vertices. Can you help me identify the shape please.

Hi Daniel,

You're in Britain and I'm in Canada but just south of here in the United States they celebrated Thanksgiving last week. The traditional desert after Thanksgiving dinner is pumpkin pie so how about a can of pumpkin?
