Line Terminology • Straight Line- generated by a point moving in a constant direction- finite • Ray- straight infinite line • Parallel Lines- two or more lines that are a constant distance apart • Perpendicular Lines- two or more lines on a plane intersecting each other at a 90° angle, sometimes called normal • Intersecting Lines- two or more lines cross each other at a common point- no specific angle to each other Line Terminology • Tangency- when a straight line is in contact with a curve at a single point- usually at a 90º angle from a radius line from the center of the arc or circle Angles • Complete Circle- 360º Acute Angle- is an angle whose measure is greater than 0 but less than 90 degrees. Right Angle- is an angle whose measure is exactly 90 degrees. Obtuse Angle- is an angle whose measure is greater than 90 but less than 180 degrees. Straight Angle- Straight angle is an angle whose measure is exactly 180 degrees. Complementary Angles-
