parallel lines
lines in the same plane that never intersect
line
a straight path that goes on forever in opposite directions
line segment
part of a line that has two endpoints
perpendicular
lines, line segments, or rays that form right angles
point
a location in a plane usually shown by a dot
intersecting lines
lines that pass through the same point
ray
a part of a line with one endpoint and that goes forever in one direction
angle
a figure formed when two rays have the same endpoint
right angle
an angle that is a square corner OR 90 degrees
acute angle
an angle that is open less than a right angle (less than 90 degrees)
obtuse angle
an angle that is open form than a right angle (more than 90 degrees), but less than a straight line (less than 180 degrees).
degree
a unit for measuring angles.
endpoint
the point at either end of a line segment or the beginning point of a ray
protractor
a semicircular tool for measuring and constructing angles
straight angle
an angle that measures 180 degrees
degree
If the angle formed by the two rays represents 1/360 of the circle, we say the angle measures 1 degree
angle measure
when you find the degrees of an angle
180 degrees
