The picture shows an obtuse angle because

the opening of the angle is greater than 90o

but less than 180o.
The picture demonstrates a right angle
because the angle formed where the rays
meet measures 90o.
The picture shows congruent segments
because each side is equal in length.
Line 1

Line 2

The picture displays perpendicular lines

because the measure of the angle where
both lines intersect is 90o.
Line 1 Line 2

Parallel lines are shown because Line 1 and

Line 2 will always be the same distance apart
and will never meet.
A negative slope is shown because the line
displays a downward trend from left to right.
The picture represents an undefined slope
because the side of the wall goes straight up
vertically, just like an undefined slope.
The red outline on the scale represents
circumference because it is the boundary, or
the length of the circle.
Angle 1 Angle 2

The picture demonstrates supplementary angles

because the measure of Angle 1 is 90o and the measure
of Angle 2 is 90o. Both pairs added together have a
sum of 180o.
1 meter
3.28 ft

3.28 ft

The picture demonstrates a length greater than 1

meter because the side of the shelf is longer
than 3.28 ft, and 3.28 ft is equivalent to 1 meter.
This picture shows a length shorter than 1
centimeter because usually, the length of 1
centimeter is about the width of the tip of
your finger. Each grain of rice is shorter
than that.
6 inches

6 inches 6 inches


In this picture, each boundary of the square

measures 6 inches. When all the sides are
added together, the total is 24 inches, which
is the perimeter of the square. To get
perimeter, you must add up all the sides of
the shape.

The purpose of this booklet is to show real-world examples of

the introductory vocabulary of Geometry through

photographs taken by myself. My goal is to help students

grasp and better understand these Geometry terms through

this booklet by the illustrations provided. Professor Tummers’

Geometry Vocabulary Review was used to help with the

description. This booklet is intended for children ages 8-12.
