2 Geometry Chapter 1-3 Points, Lines and Planes

3 Why do chairs sometimes wobble? What do the feet of a three legged stool represent? What do the feet of a three legged stool represent? –Points that lie in the same plane. Why does a four legged chair sometimes wobble on a flat surface? Why does a four legged chair sometimes wobble on a flat surface? –One of the legs represents a point that doesnt lie in the same plane as the other 3.

4 Key Terms A point is simply a location A point is simply a location A line is made up of points that has no thickness or width. A line is made up of points that has no thickness or width. –Points that are on the same line are said to be collinear.

11 Postulates You need two points to describe a line, and three noncollinear point to describe a plane. You need two points to describe a line, and three noncollinear point to describe a plane. Postulates are statements that are accepted without further justification. Postulates are statements that are accepted without further justification.
