    You can start by drawing the shape on the cartesean plane! |dw:1437964209555:dw|

    A square is created. But what 3-dimensional shape can a square make when it is rotated about the y-axis? I know that when a rectangle is rotated about the y-axis, it creates a cylinder. Does this also apply to squares?

    No worries!! It cannot create a square pyramid or prism, right?
