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.


Angle

Two rays with a common end point.


Vertex

On an angle, the endpoint of the rays forming the angle. (The common endpoints)


Ray

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.


Plane

A flat surface that extends forever.


Parallel lines

Lines in a plane that never meet.
_____________________ _____________________ 

Transversals

Lines that intersect two or more parallel lines.


Perpendicular

Lines, rays,or line segments that intersect at right angles.


Quadrilateral

A 4 sided polygon.


polygon

A geometric figure with at least 3 three sides.


parallelogram

A quadrilateral with parallel and congruent opposite sides.
Square/Rectangle/Rhombus 

Rhombuses

A parallelogram with all sides congruent. (4 congruent sides)


Trapezoid

A quadrilateral with only one pair of parallel sides.


Square

A quadrilateral with four congruent sides and four right angles.
Also called a parallelogram, rectangle and rhombus. 

Rectangle

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).

A polygon with 8 sides.


Decagon

A polugon with 10 sides.


Regular Polygon

All of the sides and all of the angles are congruent.
Examples: square and equilateral triangle 

What is the formula for finding the sum of the measures of any polygon?

(Number of sides  2)x 180 = ____degrees
Example of octagon: (8 sides  2)x 180 = 1080 degrees 

Perimeter

The distance around the outside of a figure.


Area
What is the formula used to figure out the area of a twodimentional figure? 
The number of square units to cover the a figure.
Area = base x height 

Perfect Square

is the square of a whole number.
Example: 16 = 4² or 49 = 7² 

Square Root
