Faces of cones

Ironically I too subbed today and this came up and I tought it differently than the teacher I subbed for. The book discribed a cone as a flat surface conecting two line segments. Since there aren't any line segments in a cone I thought there were no faces on cones and therefore cylinders. Later I found out that the teachers found another place in the same book where thay said that a cone has one face therefore they decided as a team to teach it that cones have one and cylinders have two. Although they admited that they aren't sure of what the real answer is either.
