1.2: Points, Lines and Planes

- Definition
- Uses known words to describe a new word.

- Undefined terms
- Words that lack a formal definition.
- In Geometry it is important to have a general agreement about these words.
- The building blocks of Geometry are undefined terms.

- The 3 Building Blocks of Geometry:
- Point
- Line
- Plane

- These are called the “building blocks of geometry” because these terms lay the foundation for Geometry.

Point

- The most basic building block of Geometry
- Has no size
- A location in space
- Represented with a dot
- Named with a Capital Letter

Example: point P

P

Line

- Set of infinitely many points
- One dimensional, has no thickness
- Goes on forever in both directions
- Named using any two points on the line with the line symbol over them, or a lowercase script letter

l

Example: line AB, AB, BA or l

A

**2 points determine a line

Plane

- Has length and width, but no thickness
- A flat surface that extends infinitely in 2-dimensions (length and width)

1.3: Segments and Their Measures

- Postulates
- Rules that are accepted without proof.
- Also called axioms

- Ruler Postulate
- The points on a line can be matched one to one with the real numbers.
- The real number that corresponds to a point is called the coordinate of the point.
- The distance between points A and B, written as AB, is the absolute value of the difference between the coordinates of A and B.
- AB is also called the length of AB.

- Segment length can be given in several different ways. The following all mean the same thing.
- A to B equals 2 inches
- AB = 2 in.
- mAB = 2 inches

- Example 1
- Measure the length of the segment to the nearest millimeter.

- Segment Addition Postulate
- If B is between A and C, then AB + BC = AC.
- If AB + BC = AC, then B is between A and C.

- Example 2
- Two friends leave their homes and walk in a straight line toward the others home. When they meet, one has walked 425 yards and the other has walked 267 yards. How far apart are their homes?

- If A(x1,y1) and B(x2,y2) are points in a coordinate plane, then the distance between A and B is

- Example 3

- Congruent
- Two segments are congruent if and only if they have the same measure.

- The symbol for congruence is .
- We use = between equal numbers and between congruent figures.

Markings on figures are used to show congruence. Use identical markings for each pair of congruent parts.

O

B

- Protractor Postulate
- Consider a point A not on OB. The rays of the form OA can be matched one to one with the real numbers from 0 to 180.
- The measure of an angle is equal to the number on the protractor which one side of the angle passes through when the other side goes through the number zero on the same scale.

Step 1: Place the center mark of the protractor on the vertex.

Step 2: Line up the 0-mark with one side of the angle.

Step 3: Read the measure on the protractor scale.

**Be sure you are reading the scale with the 0-mark you are using.

- Interior
- A point is in the interior if it is between points that lie on each side of the angle.
