## Study Notes

### Inductive Reasoning and Conjectures

- Inductive reasoning relies on observations to identify patterns.
- A conjecture is a conclusion drawn from reasoning or observations and can be proven or disproven.

### Geometric Fundamentals

- A point has no shape or size and represents a specific location in space.
- A line is a set of points extending infinitely in two directions.
- A plane is a two-dimensional flat surface extending infinitely.
- Space encompasses all points in three dimensions.

### Collinearity and Coplanarity

- Collinear points lie on the same line, while noncollinear points do not.
- Coplanar points exist within the same plane; noncoplanar points do not.

### Undefined Terms and Postulates

- The three undefined terms in geometry are point, line, and plane.
- A postulate is an accepted fact that does not require proof, also termed as an axiom.

### Line Segments and Rays

- A segment consists of part of a line with two endpoints.
- A ray has one endpoint and extends infinitely in one direction.
- Opposite rays are two rays extending in opposite directions from a common endpoint.

### Parallel and Perpendicular Lines

- Parallel lines are coplanar and never intersect.
- Perpendicular lines intersect to form four right angles.
- Skew lines are noncoplanar and cannot be parallel.

### Angle Fundamentals

- An angle is formed by two rays sharing a common endpoint called the vertex.
- Congruent angles have the same measure, while vertical angles are pairs of opposite angles formed by intersecting lines.

### Angle Relationships

- Complementary angles sum to 90 degrees.
- Supplementary angles sum to 180 degrees.
- The angle addition postulate allows for the determination of an angle's measure through the sum of smaller angles.

### Triangle and Angle Theorems

- The Triangle Angle-Sum Theorem states that the sum of angles in a triangle is always 180 degrees.
- Remote interior angles are nonadjacent interior angles that relate to an exterior angle according to the Triangle Exterior Angle Theorem.

### Congruence Postulates

- SSS, SAS, ASA, AAS, and HL are congruence postulates and theorems dictating when triangles are congruent based on their sides and angles.

### Properties of Equality

- The reflexive, symmetric, transitive, and substitution properties describe how equalities function in mathematical expressions.
- The distributive property allows for the multiplication to be distributed over addition.

### Transformations and Symmetry

- Transformations change a figure's position, shape, or size, including translations (sliding), rotations (turning), and reflections (flipping).
- Symmetry exists when a figure can be divided equally, either through reflectional or rotational symmetry.

### Congruent Figures and Polygons

- Congruent polygons have congruent corresponding parts, including sides and angles.
- Midsegments of triangles connect midpoints of two sides and are parallel to the non-connected side.

### Proofs and Logical Reasoning

- Proofs are structured methods for validating mathematical concepts through logical steps.
- CPCTC (Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles are Congruent) is used after proving triangle congruence.

### Special Segments in Triangles

- Medians connect vertices to midpoints, altitudes drop perpendicular from a vertex to the opposite side, and angle bisectors divide angles into two equal parts.
- Concurrent lines meet at a single point called the point of concurrency.

### Special Properties Related to Angles

- Alternate interior angles lie on opposite sides of a transversal and are nonadjacent.
- Corresponding angles are in the same position relative to the traversing line and the two intersected lines.
