Geometry The branch of mathematics that deals with the position, size, and shape of figures.
Hemisphere Half of a sphere
Heptagon A polygon with seven sides.
Hexagon A polygon with six sides.
Isosceles Triangle A triangle with at least two congruent sides and two congruent angles.
Kite A convex quadrilateral with two distinct pairs of adjacent, congruent sides.
Line A set of points that form a straight path extending infinitely in two directions.
Line of Symmetry A line dividing a two-dimensional figure into two parts that are mirror images of each other.
Line Segment A part of a line. A line segment has two endpoints and a definite length.
Nonagon A polygon with nine sides.
Obtuse Angle An angle that is greater than 90 degrees but less than 180 degrees
Obtuse Triangle A triangle that has one obtuse angle.
Octagon A polygon with eight sides.
Parallel Lines Lines lying in the same plane that are always the same distance apart.
Parallelogram A quadrilateral with both pairs of opposite sides parallel. Opposite angles are congruent.
Pentagon A polygon with five sides.
Perimeter The distance around a figure.
Perpendicular At right angles.
Plane A flat surface extending infinitely in all directions.
Point The smallest geometric unit. A position in space, often represented by a dot.
Polygon A simple, closed, plane figure bounded by straight sides.
Quadrilateral A polygon with four sides.
Ray A set of points that form a straight path extending infinitely in one direction. A ray has one endpoint.
Rectangle A parallelogram with four right angles. Opposite sides are congruent and parallel.
Reflection A transformation of a geometric figure that results in a mirror image of the original.
Regular Polygon A polygon that has equal sides and equal angles.
Rhombus A parallelogram with four congruent sides. Opposite angles are congruent.
Right Angle An angle that is one-fourth of a full turn. A right angle measures 90 degrees.
Right Triangle A triangle that has one right angle.
Scalene Triangle A triangle with no sides congruent.

Sphere A three-dimensional figure formed by a set of points that are all the same distance from a fixed point called the center.
Square A rectangle with congruent sides.
Symmetry If a figure can be folded along a line so that the two halves match exactly, then the figure has line symmetry.
Three-Dimensional Relating to objects that have length, width, and depth. Solid figures such as polyhedra, cones, and spheres are three-dimensional.
Translation A transformation in which a geometric figure is formed by moving every point on a figure the same distance in the same direction.
Trapezoid A quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides.
Triangle A polygon with three sides.
Triangular Prism A prism in which the bases are triangles.
Two-Dimensional Relating to figures that have length and width but not depth. Figures such as polygons and circles are two-dimensional.
Vertex A point at which two line segments, lines, or rays meet to form an angle.
