Solid shapes are classified by their regularity, how many faces, edges and vertices they have, and the shape of their faces. Faces are flat sides on a solid shape. Edges are the straight locations where two faces come together. A vertex is a pointy place where more than two faces meet, according to CK-12. Some solid shapes only have curves and irregularities instead of faces, edges and vertices. One example is the sphere. Some shapes have a combination of faces and curved parts, such as cylinders and cones.
