Geometry

Points, Lines and Angles

Points, lines and planes are the building blocks for geometry. In this introductory unit students explore these objects along with other basic geometric concepts and terms. These include the measure of an angle; the relationship among points, lines, and planes; the distance between two points, a point and a line, and two lines; and the relationships among the angles formed when two lines are cut by a transversal.
