1 BASIC GEOMETRY GLOSSARY Acute angle An angle that measures between 0 and 90. Examples: Acute triangle A triangle in which each angle is an acute angle. Adjacent angles Two angles next to each other that share a common vertex and a common side. ABC is adjacent to CBD.

2 Alternate exterior angles - A pair of angles that are exterior to the lines and on alternate sides of the transversal. 1 and 8 and 2 and 7 are alternate exterior angles. Alternate interior angles - A pair of angles that are interior to the lines but on alternate sides of the transversal. 3 and 6 and 4 and 5 are alternate interior angles.

3 Altitude (1) Height. (2) The perpendicular segment from the vertex of a triangle to the line that contains the opposite side. Angle Two rays that have a common endpoint. Examples:

4 Angle bisector A ray that divides an angle into two equal adjacent angles. Angle of depression The angle formed by the horizontal and the line of sight to an object below the horizontal.

5 Angle of elevation - The angle formed by the horizontal and the line of sight to an object above the horizontal. Angle of incidence - The angle formed by a ray incident on a surface and a perpendicular to the surface at the point of incidence. The angle of incidence = the angle of reflection. Where i is the angle of incidence and r is the angle of reflection.

6 Angle of reflection - The angle formed by a reflected ray and a perpendicular to the surface at the point of reflection. The angle of reflection = the angle of incidence. Where i is the angle of incidence and r is the angle of reflection. Area - The amount of square units that covers a given surface. ASA (1) Suppose that we have two triangles ABC and DEF. If a side of ABC and two angles that have this side of ABC as one of their sides are equal to the corresponding side and two angles of the triangle DEF, then triangles ABC and DEF are equal. The proof for the above is: Given: AC CD, B D. Prove: VABC VEDC Proof: Statement Reason AC CD Given B D Given ACB ECD Vertical Angles VABC VEDC ASA

7 (2) If two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles of another triangle, then the triangles are similar, known as AA similarity. Base The face or lower side of a geometric shape. Base angle of an isosceles triangle The angle that is opposite of one of the equilateral sides of an isosceles triangle. There are two base angles in an isosceles triangle.

8 Betweenness of points - In the figure, Point B is between A and C while Point Y is not between A and B. For B to be between A and C, all three points must be collinear and B must lie on segment AC. Centroid Where the three medians of a triangle intersect. Also called the center of gravity.

13 Congruent polygons - Two polygons that are equal in shape and size. Written as A B. Congruent segments - Two segments that are equal in length. Written as A B. Converse A reversed condition. For example: if a b, then its converse is b a. Converse of the Pythagorean theorem This states that if the sum of the squares of the two shorter sides of a triangle equals the square of the longest side of the triangle, then the triangle is a right triangle. This is written as: c 2 = a 2 + b 2. Convex polygon A polygon in which each interior angle is less than or equal to 180. Examples: Coplanar Within the same plane.

14 Corresponding angles Two non-adjacent angles on the same side of the transversal, with one angle interior and one angle exterior to the lines. Where 2 and 6 are corresponding angles. Cosine - The ratio of the length of the side that is adjacent to an angle to the length of the hypotenuse in a right triangle. cosb (cosine of B ) = AB, where AB is the length of the adjacent sides and BC is the BC length of the hypotenuse.

15 CPCTC When you have two congruent triangles, then all six pairs of corresponding parts (sides and angles) are congruent. This statement is usually known as corresponding parts of congruent triangles are congruent, or CPCTC for short. For the above, if VABC V XYZ then AB ZY, BC YX, AC XZ, A Z, B Y and C X.
