1. 1. Geometry in the Real World <ul><li>By Canute Jacobsen </li></ul><ul><li>Mrs. Sykes 2 nd block </li></ul>
2. 2. Point <ul><li>An undefined term in geometry. It names a location and has no size. </li></ul><ul><li>*Registration and inspection stickers on a windshield are examples of points on a plane. </li></ul>
3. 3. Line Segment <ul><li>A part of a line consisting of two endpoints and all points </li></ul>between them.
4. 4. Plane <ul><li>A flat surface that has no thickness and extends forever. </li></ul>
5. 5. Angle <ul><li>A figure formed by 2 rays, or sides, with a common endpoint. </li></ul>
6. 6. Perpendicular lines <ul><li>Lines that intersect at 90 degrees. </li></ul>
7. 7. Parallel Lines <ul><li>Coplaner lines that do not intersect. </li></ul>
8. 8. Triangle <ul><li>A 3-sided shape whose angles add up to 180 degrees. </li></ul>
9. 9. Right triangle <ul><li>A triangle with one right angle. </li></ul>

12. 12. Square <ul><li>A quadrilateral with four congruent sides and four congruent angles. </li></ul>
13. 13. Rectangle <ul><li>A quadrilateral with four right angles. </li></ul>
14. 14. Trapezoid <ul><li>A quadrilateral with exactly one pair of par allel sides. </li></ul>
15. 15. Parallelogram <ul><li>A quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel sides. </li></ul>
16. 16. Circle <ul><li>The set of points in a pla ne that are a fixed distance from a given point called the center of the circle. </li></ul>
17. 17. Cylinder <ul><li>A three-dimensional figure with two parallel congruent circular bases and a curbed lateral surface that connects the bases. </li></ul>
18. 18. Sphere <ul><li>The set of points in space that are a fixed distance from a given point called the center of the sphere. </li></ul>
19. 19. Octagon <ul><li>An eight-sided polygon. </li></ul>
20. 20. Oval <ul><li>A closed plane curve resulting from the intersection of a circular cone and a plane cutting completely through it. </li></ul>
21. 21. Skew Lines <ul><li>Lines that are not coplaner. </li></ul>
