Question | Answer |

Any shape that has only straight lines, no curved lines, all lines meet (no gaps) and no lines cross. Ex: Square, Triangle, Rhombus. | Polygon |

The distance around a shape. Measure all sides, then add them up. | Perimeter |

Two lines, side-by-side, that continue on forever and never touch or cross. | Parallel |

Two lines that touch or cross each other | Intersect |

A 4-sided polygon that has 2 pairs of parallel sides. EX: A square, the top and bottom are parallel, the two sides are parallel. | Parallelogram |

A figure that is formed by two rays or two line segments that have the same endpoint. | Angle |

The amount of surface inside a shape. | Area |

The amount a container or scale can hold | Capacity |

The distance around a circle, or its perimeter | circumference |

Two shapes that are the exact same size and shape. | Congruent figures |

A solid that has two circular bases that are parallel and the same size. The bases are connected by a curved surface. A can and a paper towel roll are examples. | Cylinder |

Information that is collected by counting, measuring, asking questions, or observing. | Data |

The number below the line in a fraction. For examples, in 3/4, 4 is the denominator. | Denominator |

A line segment that goes through the center or a circle. | Diameter |

The point at the end of a ray or line segment | Endpoint |

A triangle with all three sides the same length and all three angles measure the same. | Equilateral triangle |

An answer that is close to an exact answer. | Estimate |

Any of the numbers that are multiplied to find a product. For example, in the problem 4X7= 28, 28 is the product and 4 and 7 are the factors. | Factors |

The study of shapes | Geometry |

A straight path that goes on forever in both directions. | Line |

A straight path between two endpoints. Almost like a piece of a line with two dots on the ends. | Line Segment |

The largest number in a set of data | Maximum |

The smallest number in a set of data | Minimum |

The number or value that occurs most often in a set of data | Mode |

A number that is less than zero | Negative number |

The number above the line in a fraction. For example, in 3/4, 3 is the numerator. | Numerator |

An exact location in space. | Point |

A number that is greater than zero. | Positive number |

A polygon that has four sides and four angles. The same as quadrilateral. | Quadrangle |

A line segment that goes from the center of a circle to any point on the circle. | Radius |

The difference between the biggest (maximum) and the smallest (minimum) numbers in a set of data. | Range |

A straight path that has one endpoint and goes on forever. | Ray |

The amount left over when things are divided or shared equally. Sometimes there is no remainder. | Remainder |

A parallelogram with all four sides the same length. Ex: kite, square | Rhombus |

A 90 degree angle, its sides form a square corner. | Right angle |

A triangle with one 90 degree angle. | Right triangle |

A 4 sided polygon with exactly one pair of parallel sides. | Trapezoid |

The point where the rays of an angle or the sides of a polygon or the edges of a polyhedron meet. | Vertex |

The amount of space inside a three-dimensional object. | Volume |

Whats a fraction | Part of a whole number.Ex:7/8 (seven parts out of eight.) |
