# Geometry Chapter 1

Term | Definition |
---|---|

Point in Synthetic Geometry | An exact location with zero-dimensions, and a point is found on the number line. |

Point in Discrete Geometry | A dot with 3-dimensions, has size and shape |

Point in Plane-Coordinate | An ordered pair with zero-dimensions, made of real numbers. |

Point in Network Geometry | A node with zero dimensions. |

Line in Discrete Geometry | Dots with spaces between. Lines have thickness (3-D) |

Line in Synthetic Geometry | Shortest, straight distance between two points. A line is dense, and infinitely extends in opposite directions. (Number line) |

Line in Plane Coordinate Geometry | Set of ordered pairs (x, y) that satisfy the equation Ax+By=C. Line is dense, straight, and continues on in opposite directions. |

Line in Network Geometry | A line segment or arc that connects one or two nodes together. There may be an infinite number of lines/arcs between two nodes. |

Geometric Undefined Terms | Cannot be defined by using other figures. Ex: Point, Line, and Plane. |

Number Line Assumption | Every line can be made to correspond to the real number, once zero and one are designated on the number line. |

Parallel Lines | Lines that lie in the same plane and have no point in common |

Unique Line Assumption | through any two points, there is exactly one line |

Dimension Assumption | #1) Given a line in a plane, there is at least one point in the plane, not on the line. #2) Given a plane in a space, there is one point in space not on that plane. |

Pixel | A tiny dot that creates an image on the computer monitor or screen. |

One Dimensional Figures | A figure in which all points are collinear (line segment, line, and ray). |

Two Dimensional Figures | A figure that's not collinear, but coplanar. Ex: Box, Triangle, Circle, etc. |

Three Dimensional Figures | Figures that are not coplanar; cannot be contained in the same plane. Ex: Football, backpack, humans, rectangular prism. |

How can discrete lines intersect? | At a point or a space. |

Segment | Consists of two endpoints, and all points between two endpoints. |

Endpoints | A place where a line segment (or ray) begins and ends. |

Ray | Part of a line with one endpoint that continues infinitely in one direction. |

Opposite Rays | Two rays that have the same endpoint and form a line. |

Unique Distance Property | Between any two points, there is a unique distance. |

How do you find the distance between two points? | Take the absolute value of the difference. Ex: |A-B| or |B-A| |

Vanishing Points | The point at the horizon line at which parallel lines appear to converge |
