  • Front
  • Back
acute angle
An angle of less than 90 degrees.
Right Angle
An angle of 90 degrees.
Obtuse Angle
An angle of more than 90 degrees.
Straight Angle
An angle that measures 180 degrees.
Two rays with a common end point.
On an angle, the endpoint of the rays forming the angle. (The common endpoints)
Has one endpoint and extends without end in one direction.
Complementary Angles
Two angles whose measures add up to 90 degrees.

20 degrees + 70 degrees = 90 degrees
35 degrees + 55 degrees = 90 degrees
Supplementary Angles
Two angles whose measures add up to 180 degrees.

80 degrees + 100 degrees = 180 degrees
35 degrees + 145 degrees = 180 degrees
Congruent Angles
Angles that have equal measures.
Angle bisector
A ray bisecting an angle.
Angle bisector
A ray bisecting an angle.
A flat surface that extends forever.

Also called a parallelogram, rectangle and rhombus.
A quadrilateral that has four right angles.

Also called a parallelogram.
Equilateral Triangle
A triangle whose sides are all the same length.
Acute Triangle
A triangle with three acute angles.
Obtuse Triangle
A triangle with one obtuse angle (more than 90 degrees and less than 180 degrees).
