This section is the basic terms for math also known as the basic elements. [pic] 1. Theorem (textbook definition)-A statement or conjecture that can be proven true by undefined terms, definitions, and postulates. (Online) - a theoretical proposition, statement, or formula embodying something to be proved from other propositions or formulas . It’s easy for me to understand because 2. Congruent (textbook definition) – Having the same measure. (Online) - of or pertaining to two numbers related by a congruence. It’s easy for me to understand because to me congruent means same size, same length that’s how I know congruent and understand it very well. 3. Postulate (textbook definition) – A statement that describes a fundamental relationship between the basic terms of geometry. (Online) - a proposition that requires no proof, being self-evident, or that is for a specific purpose assumed true, and that is used in the proof of other propositions; axiom. It’s easy for me to understand because it helps me understand what the equation is asking. 4. Parallel Line (textbook definition) – Coplanar lines that do not intersect. (Online) - Two nonvertical lines are parallel if and only if they have the same slope. It’s easy for me to understand because you can always remember this one only because of the two L’s they represent parallel. 5. Perpendicular Lines (textbook definition) – Lines that forms right angles. (Online) - Lines that are at right angles (90°) to each other. It’s easy for me to understand because perpendicular lines cross in the middle and creates 4 right angles on a grid. 6. Point (textbook definition) – A basic undefined term of geometry also a location that are represented by a dot. (Online) - none. It’s easy for me to understand because it’s a dot on the graph. 7.
