Study Notes


  • An equilateral triangle is defined by having three equal sides and angles.
  • An obtuse triangle is a type of triangle that has one angle exceeding 90 degrees.

Foundations of Geometry

  • Points, lines, and planes are the fundamental building blocks that form the foundation of spatial understanding and analysis in geometry.

Geometric Concepts

  • Lines and planes provide a framework for defining and analyzing geometric shapes and structures.
  • Angles measure the amount of rotation between two lines or planes within geometrical space.


  • Translation in geometry involves moving a shape from one location to another without changing its size or orientation.
  • Rotation in geometry involves turning a shape around a fixed point or axis.

3D Geometry

  • The defining feature of prisms is that they have two identical faces that are parallel to each other.
  • Cones in 3D geometry taper from a circular base to a point.

Coordinate Geometry

  • The Cartesian plane is a two-dimensional grid used to locate points in coordinate geometry, providing a visual representation of geometric relationships and relationships between shapes.
