Geometry In The Golf World

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