Geo In The  Real  World Geo In The Real World Presentation Transcript

  • Geometry in the Real World By: Amanda Granato
  • Point A point specifies only location; it has no length, width, or depth. We usually represent a point with a dot on paper
  • Line Segment A line segment is the portion of a line lying strictly between two points. View slide
  • Plane A plane is a flat, two-dimensional object. We often represent a plane by a piece of paper, a blackboard, or the top of a desk. In fact, none of these is actually a plane, because a plane must continue infinitely in all directions and have no thickness at all. A plane can be defined by two intersecting lines or by three non-collinear points. View slide
  • Angle A shape, formed by two lines or rays diverging from a common point (the vertex)
  • Perpendicular Lines Two lines that intersect to form a 90° angle
  • Parallel Lines Parallel lines are two lines in the same plane that never intersect
  • Triangle a geometric figure having three angles and three sides; any three-sided or three-cornered figure, area, object, part, etc.
  • Right Triangle A right triangle is a triangle with one right (90°) angle
  • Pentagon A polygon having five sides and five interior angles.
  • Hexagon a six-sided polygon
  • Square a plane figure having four equal sides and four right angles
  • Rectangle a parallelogram with four right angles
  • Trapezoid a quadrilateral with two parallel sides
  • Parallelogram a quadrilateral whose opposite sides are both parallel and equal in length
  • Circle A plane curve everywhere equidistant from a given fixed point, the center
  • Cylinder The surface generated by a straight line intersecting and moving along a closed plane curve
  • Sphere A three-dimensional surface, all points of which are equidistant from a fixed point
  • Isosceles Triangle An isosceles triangle is a triangle with two equal sides.
  • Angle Bisector An angle bisector is a ray that cuts the angle exactly in half, making two equal angles.
  • Edge An edge is a line segment where two faces intersect.
