<ul><li> 1. Geometry in the Real World! Sam Lassiter Period-5</li></ul> <p> 2. Point! </p> <ul><li>Definition: Apointis an exact position or location on a plane surface. </li></ul> <p> 3. Line! </p> <ul><li>Definition: Aline segmentis a part of a line that is bounded by two end points, and contains every point on the line between its end points. </li></ul> <p> 4. Plane! </p> <ul><li>Definition: A surface containing all the straight lines that connect any two points on it. </li></ul> <p> 5. Angle! </p> <ul><li>Definition: A shape, formed by two lines or rays diverging from a common point. </li></ul> <p> 6. Perpendicular Lines! </p> <ul><li>Definition: Two lines that intersect to form a 90 degree angle. </li></ul> <p> 7. Parallel Lines! </p> <ul><li>Definition: Parallel lines remain the same distance apart over their entire length. </li></ul> <p> 8. Triangle! </p> <ul><li>Definition: A three sided polygon. </li></ul> <p> 9. Right Triangle! </p> <ul><li>Definition: Aright triangleis where there are two 45 degrees angles and one 90 degree.</li></ul> <p> 10. Pentagon! </p> <ul><li>Definition: A plane figure having five angles, and consequently, five sides; any figure having five angles. </li></ul> <p> 11. Hexagon! </p> <ul><li>Definition: A polygon with 6 sides. </li></ul> <p> 12. Square! </p> <ul><li>Definition: A plane figure having equal sides. </li></ul> <p> 13. Rectangle! </p> <ul><li>Definition: Arectangleis a four-sided polygon where every angle is a right angle. </li></ul> <p> 14. Trapezoid! </p> <ul><li>Definition: A quadrilateral having two parallel sides. </li></ul> <p> 15. Parallelogram! </p> <ul><li>Definition: Opposite sides are parallel and equal in length, and opposite angles are equal. </li></ul> <p> 16. Circle! </p> <ul><li>Definition: A plane curve everywhere equidistant from a given fixed point, the center. </li></ul> <p> 17. Cylinder! </p> <ul><li>Definition: An object or shape with straight sides and circular ends of equal size. </li></ul> <p> 18. Sphere! </p> <ul><li>Definition: A three-dimensional surface, all points of which are equidistant from a fixed point.</li></ul> <p> 19. Octagon! </p> <ul><li>Definition: A plane figure with eight angles and eight sides.</li></ul> <p> 20. Polygon! </p> <ul><li>Definition: A closed plane figure bounded by three or more line segments.</li></ul> <p> 21. Parabola! </p> <ul><li>Definition: A plane curve formed by the intersection of a right circular cone and a plane parallel to an element of the cone or by the locus of points equidistant from a fixed line and a fixed point not on the line. </li></ul>
