Geometric Construction & Terms

Geometry The study of the size and shape of things
The relationship of straight and curved lines in drawing shapes It is essential to recognize geometry that exists within objects for the purpose of creating solid models or multiview drawings

Angles Acute Angle Obtuse Angle Right Angle Vertex Vertex
Measures less than 90° Obtuse Angle Measures more than 90° Right Angle Measures exactly 90° Vertex Point at which two lines of an angle intersect Vertex

Distance from the center of a circle to its edge Diameter Distance across a circle through its center Circumference Distance around the edge of a circle Chord Line across a circle that does not pass at the circle’s center

Circle Quadrant Concentric Has 360° One fourth (quarter) of a circle
90° Has 360° Quadrant One fourth (quarter) of a circle Measures 90° Concentric Two or more circles of different sizes that share the same center point

Triangles Equilateral Isosceles Scalene
All three sides are of equal length and all three angles are equal Isosceles Two sides are of equal length Scalene Sides of three different lengths and angles with three different values

Triangles HYPOTENUSE Right Triangle Hypotenuse
One of the angles equals 90° Hypotenuse The side of a right triangle that is opposite the 90° angle HYPOTENUSE

Four equal sides and all angles equal 90° Rectangle Two sides equal lengths and all angles equal 90° Trapezoid Only two sides are equal length

Geometric Terms Bisect Tangent Divide into two equal parts
A line and arc, or two arcs that touch each other at one point only

Geometric Terms Parallel Perpendicular
