We all know that the three-dimensional version of a square is a cube, but what's it called when it looks like the shape shown below?  It's a special case of a cuboid called a rectangular cuboid.  A cuboid is a hexahedron, a six-faced solid, and its faces are quadrilaterals.  So the familiar cube is a special case of a cuboid where all six sides are identical squares.  All this takes me back to being a sophomore in high school and it's no wonder geometry was not my favorite subject.

Maybe it would be simpler to call it a brick...
