Cube (Hexahedron) Facts
Notice these interesting things:
Volume and Surface Area
Volume = (Edge Length)3
Surface Area = 6 × (Edge Length)2
A cube is also called a hexahedron because it is a polyhedron that has 6 (hexa- means 6) faces.
Cubes make nice 6-sided dice, because they are regular in shape, and each face is the same size.
In fact, you can make fair dice out of all of the Platonic Solids.
