"Solid Figures" is an enhanced iBook with 3D Collada and interactive images. The basic solid figures are explained: cone, prism, cylinder, pyramid and sphere. Each chapter handles one solid figure and shows how to calculate the area and volume. The interactive images denote the necessary values like height, length etc. whereas the 3D Collada images allow to rotate and view the solid figure in all directions. This allow exact observation and relationships among the geometrical features.
Three problems are covered in detail using 3D images and interactivity. The problems are not trivial and demand the 3D explanations. The same concept is used as in theory chapters, where interactive images are used to denote the values and 3D Collada images to view the solids from all sides.
