Point a location in space that has no size
line a series of points that extends in opposite directions without end
Plane a flat surface with no thickness and extends without end in all directions
Line segment a part of a line that has two endpoints
ray a part of a line that has exactly one endpoint and extends without end in one direction
parallel lines two lines that lie in the same plane and do not intersect
skew lines lines that do not lie in the same plane, are not parallel and do not intersect
Adjacent angles angles that share a vertex and a side but no points in their interiors
vertical angles angles that are formed by two intersecting lines and are opposite each other.

reflection a transformation that flips a figure over a line of reflection
reflectional symmetry when one half of a figure is a mirror image of the other half
right angle an angle that measures 90 degrees
rotation a transformation that turns a figure about a fixed point
rotational symmetry when the figure can be rotated 180 degrees or less and match the original figure
straight angle an angle with a measure of 180 degrees
