Geometric Applications of Exponents
A Coggle Diagram about (Base (of a Polygon)- for two-dimensional figures, any side can be a base. Typically, however, the bottom side, on which the polygon ‘sits,’ is called the base.), Right Triangle- a triangle with exactly one right angle., Geometric Solid- the collective term of all bounded three dimensional geometric figures., Cubed Root- one of three identical factors of a number that is the product of those factors., Diameter- the distance across a circle through its center. The line segment that includes the center and whose endpoints lie on the circle., Cylinder- a three dimensional object with two parallel, congruent, circular bases., Cone- a three dimensional figure with a circular or elliptical base and one vertex., Coordinate Plane- a two-dimensional surface on which points are plotted and located by their x and y coordinates., Coordinate Point of a Plane- a pair of numbers defining the position of a point on a two-dimensional plane., Converse of Pythagorean Theorem- If the square of the length of the longest side of a triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the lengths of the other two sides, the triangle is a right triangle.
, Distance Formula- an application of the Pythagorean Theorem based on the distance between two points., Altitude of a Triangle- the perpendicular distance between a vertex of a triangle and the side opposite that vertex. Sometimes called the height of a triangle. Also, sometimes the line segment itself is referred to as the altitude., Deductive Reasoning- the process by which one makes conclusions using known facts, definitions, rules, or properties., Height of Solids- the vertical height (or altitude) which is the perpendicular distance from the top down to the base., Pythagorean Theorem- a theorem that states that in a right triangle, the square of the length of the hypotenuse equals the sum of the squares of the lengths of the legs., Analytic geometry was created by René Descartes and Pierre de Ferma, Hypotenuse- the hypotenuse is the side of a right triangle that is directly across from the right angle., Irrational- a real number whose decimal form is non-terminating and non-repeating that cannot be written as the ratio of two integers., Leg of a Triangle- either of the two shorter sides of a right triangle. These two sides together form the right angle in the right triangle., Literal Equation- an equation with more than one variable. Formulas are literal equations., Perfect Squares- the product of a rational number multiplied by itself., Pythagorean Triples- a set of positive integers, a, b, and c that fit the rule a2 + b2 = c2., Sphere- the set of all points in space that are equidistant from a fixed point, called the center., Square Root- the square root of a number is a special value that, when multiplied by itself, gives the number., Radius- the distance from the center of a circle to any point on the circle. Also, the line segment that has the center of the circle as one endpoint and a point on the circle as the other endpoint., Radical- a symbol that is used to indicate square roots., Rational Number- any number that can be expressed as the quotient a/b of two integers, with the denominator b not equal to zero., Volume- the amount of space occupied by an object. and Geometric Applications of Exponents can be used when you ar doing the math concept geometric vital signs. You can also use it when doing pythagorean theorem.
