**What are the undefined terms?**

Aim: What are the undefined terms? Do Now: What is a point? What is a line? What is a plane? The most fundamental concepts in geometry do not have precise definitions but, we understand their meanings intuitively. We say these concepts are undefined. Geometry Leeson: Undefined Terms, Lines, Line Segments

**Geometry Leeson: Undefined Terms, Lines, Line Segments**

3
**. P . A(2, 6) A point indicates a position or location in space.**

X Y . A(2, 6) Points are named using capital letters and/or coordinates. Geometry Leeson: Undefined Terms, Lines, Line Segments

4
**A line is an infinite set of adjacent points.**

Ex: Curved line Ex: Straight line Naming a Line: Two points on the line: Single lowercase letter A B C m Geometry Leeson: Undefined Terms, Lines, Line Segments

6
**A plane is a set of points that forms a completely flat surface.**

Naming a Plane: Three points on the plane: Single uppercase letter: A • C• B • Plane ABC R Plane R Geometry Leeson: Undefined Terms, Lines, Line Segments

7
Intersections? Lines intersect at a point Planes intersect at a line

8
**Def: Collinear Points:**

A collinear set of points is a set of points all of which lie on the same straight line. A B C D E Points A, B, C and D are collinear. Points A, E and C are not collinear. Geometry Leeson: Undefined Terms, Lines, Line Segments

9
**Use the names of the endpoints.**

Def: Line Segment: A B A line segment is the set of two points on a line called endpoints, and all points on the line between the endpoints. Naming a Line Segment: Use the names of the endpoints. A B “Line segment” is part of “Line” Geometry Leeson: Undefined Terms, Lines, Line Segments

10
**Measure of Line Segments:**

The measure of a line segment is the length of the line segment. To indicate the “measure” of a line segment, use the name of the line segment without the line above the name. Ex: = “measure of line segment” Ex: The perimeter of is 58 cm. If AB = x - 4, BC = 2x + 8, and CA= x – 2, what is BC? Ans. BC=36 cm Geometry Leeson: Undefined Terms, Lines, Line Segments

11
**Def: Congruent Line Segments:**

Congruent line segments are segments that are equal in measure. Ex: A C D B If Then AB = CD Ans. CD = 29, AB = 29 Geometry Leeson: Undefined Terms, Lines, Line Segments

12
Def: Midpoint The midpoint of a line segment divides the line segment into two congruent segments. A B M 1) 3) 5) 2) 4) 6) Geometry Leeson: Undefined Terms, Lines, Line Segments

13
**X A B 1) 2) Def: Line Bisector**

The bisector of a line segment is a line that intersects the line segment at its midpoint. A B M P Q 1) 2) X Geometry Leeson: Undefined Terms, Lines, Line Segments

14
**Addition and Subtraction of Line Segments:**

If several line segments belong to the same line, we can write addition and subtraction expressions using the names of these segments. R P S Geometry Leeson: Undefined Terms, Lines, Line Segments
