 Sum of the interior angles of a triangle
 180 degrees
 Congruent angles
 Angles with the same measurement
 Acute Triangle
 Triangle with 3 angles less than 90 degrees
 Right Triangle
 Triangle with one 90 degree angle
 Obtuse triangle
 Triangle with one obtuse angle
 Equiangular Triangle
 A triangle with 3 angles congruent (each meases 60 degrees)
 Type of angles formed when lines intersect.
 Vertical angles
 What the congruent sides of an isosceles triangle are called.
 legs
 What the noncongruent side of an isosceles triangle is called.
 The base
 What do we know about the base angles of an isosceles triangle?
 They are congruent and opposite the legs (the congruent sides)

e. NO parallel sides  What makes a trapezoid a trapezoid?

a. exactly one pair of parallel sides
b. Parallel sides ARE NOT congruent.
c. 2 sets of consecutive angles are supplementary
d. non parallel sides called legs
e. parallel sides called bases  What makes an isosceles trapezoid?

a. everything that makes a trapezoid a trapezoid.
b. diagonals are congruent.
c. Base angles are congruent
d. legs are congruent.  What are the three undefined terms in geometry?
 point line and plane
 Why are the 3 undefined terms considered undefined?
 Because the definitions are circular, it really isn't possilbe to define them without using the words in the definitions.
 point
 has no size, but can be represented by a dot
