Presentation on theme: "BASIC ELEMENTS OF GEOMETRY"— Presentation transcript:
1 BASIC ELEMENTS OF GEOMETRY Think of geometry as a skyscraper.At its foundation are three basic terms: point, line and plane.These terms are used to define other geometric terms.All these terms are the steel beams of the skyscraper, built carefully upon one another and upon the foundation of the three basic terms.But no matter how firm the foundation, the skyscraper won’t stand unless its beams are carefully connected. In geometry, we connect geometric terms with relationships.Using your foldable, we will go over review the basic terms along with connecting relationships that will be needed for the material we will cover in Chapter 9: Represent Geometry with Algebra.Teacher note:Encourage students to take notes in their Foldable as you progress through this presentation.
2 FOLDABLEThis slide is to make sure students have put their foldables together correctly.Please run the pdf file two-sided. (Each student should receive 4 sheets of paper)
