- A polygon with six sides.
- Hexagon

- angle
- A figure that is formed by two rays or two line segments with a common endpoint.

- Circle
- the set of all points in a plane that are the same distance from a given oint known as the center.

- Circumference
- The distance around a circle or sphere (perimeter of a circle)

- concave polygon
- a polygon in which at least on vertex is "pushed in"

- Concentric circles
- circles that have the same center but different radii.

- congruent
- having the same shape and size

- convex polygons
- a polygon in which all verticies are pushed outward

- diameter
- a line segment that passes through the center of a circle or sphere and has endpoints on the circle or sphere.

- endpoint
- A point at the end of a line segment or ray

- equilateral triangle
- a triangle with all angles and sides equal.

- hexagon
- a polygon with six sides

- intersect

- meeting at right angles

- point
- an exact location in space

- polygon
- a closed 2-d figure that is made up of line segments and has one inside and one outside

- quadrangle or quadrilateral
- a polygon that has four sides

- radius
- a line segemnt from the center of the circleto any point on the circle. Half the diameter

- ray
- a straight path that extends infinitely from one endpoint

- rectangle

- regular polygon
- a polygon in which all angles and sides are equal

- rhombus
- a quadrilateral whose sides are all the same length
