To save you having to refer to a dictionary, we’ve listed below some of the more common geometry terms and geometry definitions to help you help with your child’s geometry homework.
|Point||A location in space - a dot on a piece of paper|
|Line||Connects two points via the shortest path and
continues indefinitely (forever) in both directions
|Line Segment||Part of a line between two points|
|Perpendicular Line Segment||Line Segments that intersect (cross) at an angle of 90°|
|Parallel Line Segments||Line segments that never intersect
(they are always the same distance apart)
|Right Angle||An angle that measures 90°|
|Acute Angle||An angle that measures less than 90°|
|Obtuse Angle||An angle that measures more than 90°|
|Vertex||Point at which two line segments intersect
(forming an angle)
|Scalene Triangle||A triangle with all three sides with different lengths|
|Isosceles Triangle||A triangle with two equal length sides
(and two equal internal angles)
|Equilateral Triangle||A triangle with all three sides of equal length
(each internal angles = 60°)
|Radius||Distance (line segment) from center of a circle
to any point on that circle's circumference.
|Diameter||A line segment (or length) joining two points on
a circles circumference and passes through the
circle's center (twice the length of the radius)
|Circumference||Distance around a circle (the perimeter)|
|Chord||A line segment joining two points on a curve.|
|Arc||Part of a curve|
