## Geometry In The Golf WorldPresentation Transcript

• Geometry In The Golf World
Brendan Keen 5th Period
Golf Themed
• A point is a location in space.
It is usually left undefined but it has four representations: the dot, the node, the location, and the ordered pair.
Point
• A line segment is a part of a line that is bounded by two endpoints.
It contains every point on the line between the two endpoints.
Line Segment
• Plane
An imaginary flat surface that is infinitely large and with zero thickness.
• Angle
A shape formed by two lines or rays diverging from the same point.
• Perpendicular Lines
Lines that meet or cross to form 90 degree angles.
• Parallel Lines
Lines that lie on the same plane and stay the same distance apart over their entire length.
• Triangle
A closed figure consisting of three line segments that are linked end to end. A three sided polygon.
• Right Triangle
A triangle where one of its interior angles is a right angle.
• Pentagon
A polygon with five sides. There are regular polygons and irregular polygons.
• Hexagon
A polygon with six sides. There are regular and irregular hexagons.
• Square
A four sided, regular polygon with all sides equal and all internal angles 90 degrees.
• Rectangle
A four-sided polygon where all interior angles are 90 degrees.
• Trapezoid
A quadrilateral with at least two parallel sides.
• Parallelogram
A quadrilateral with both pairs of opposite sides parallel and equal in length.
• Circle
A line forming a closed loop, every point on which is a fixed distance from a center point.
• Cylinder
A solid body which may be generated by the rotation of a parallelogram around one of its sides.
• Sphere
A three-dimensional surface in which all points are equidistant from a fixed point.
• Cube
A solid with six congruent square faces. A regular hexahedron.
• Oval
A closed plane curve resulting from the intersection of a circular cone and a plane cutting completely through it.
• Cone
A shape whose base is a circle and whose sides taper up to a point.
