## Geometry in the Real World Project (Mrs. Sykes)Presentation Transcript

• Geometry in the Real World (Sports) Andy Ritter Per. 5
• Point
• An undefined term in geometry, it names a location and has no size.
• Line (Segment)
• An undefined term in geometry, a line is in a straight path that has no thickness and extends forever.
• Plane
• An undefined term in geometry, it is a flat surface that has no thickness and extends forever.
• Angle
• A figure formed by two rays with a common endpoint.
• His right arm is almost at 90 °.
• Perpendicular Lines
• Intersecting lines that form 90 ° angles.
• Parallel Lines
• Lines in the same plane that do not intersect.
• Triangle
• A three-sided polygon.
• Right Triangle
• A triangle with one right angle.
• Pentagon
• A five-sided polygon.
• Hexagon
• A six-sided polygon.
• Square
• A quadrilateral with four congruent sides and four right angles
• Rectangle
• A quadrilateral with four right angles.
• Trapezoid
• A quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides.
• Parallelogram
• A quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel sides.
• Circle
• The set of points in a plane that are a fixed distance from a given point called the center of the circle.
• Cylinder
• A three-dimensional figure with two parallel congruent circular bases and a curved lateral surface that connects the bases.
• Sphere
• The set of points in space that are a fixed distance from a given point called the center of the sphere.
• Cone
• A three-dimensional figure with a circular base and a curved lateral surface that connects the base to a point called the vertex.
• Pyramid
• A polyhedron formed by a polygonal base and triangular lateral faces that meet at a common vertex.
• Octagon
• An eight-sided polygon.
