## 1. Topic Overview

### Main Concept/Theme

Geometry is a branch of mathematics that focuses on the properties and relationships of points, lines, surfaces, and shapes.

### Key Learning Objectives

- Understand and define geometric terms.
- Identify types of angles and their properties.
- Understand the properties of triangles and quadrilaterals.
- Use formulas to calculate the area and perimeter of various shapes.
- Develop problem-solving skills through geometric applications.

## 2. Key Terms and Definitions

**Point:**A location in space with no dimensions, only position.**Line:**A one-dimensional figure that extends infinitely in both directions.**Plane:**A flat, two-dimensional surface that extends infinitely.**Angle:**Formed by two rays with a common endpoint, measured in degrees.**Triangle:**A polygon with three sides and three angles.**Quadrilateral:**A polygon with four sides and four angles.**Perimeter:**The distance around a two-dimensional shape.**Area:**The measure of space inside a two-dimensional shape.

## 3. Main Content Sections

### 3.1 Basic Geometric Terms

**Points, Lines, and Planes:**Understand how to represent and label points (A, B, C), lines (AB, CD), and planes (plane M).**Line Segments and Rays:**A line segment has two endpoints, while a ray starts at one point and extends infinitely in one direction.

### 3.2 Types of Angles

**Acute Angle:**An angle less than 90 degrees.**Right Angle:**An angle equal to 90 degrees.**Obtuse Angle:**An angle greater than 90 degrees but less than 180 degrees.**Straight Angle:**An angle equal to 180 degrees.

### 3.3 Properties of Triangles

**Types of Triangles:****Equilateral Triangle:**All sides and angles are equal.**Isosceles Triangle:**Two sides and two angles are equal.**Scalene Triangle:**All sides and angles are different.**Right Triangle:**Has one 90-degree angle.**Sum of Interior Angles:**Always equals 180 degrees.

### 3.4 Properties of Quadrilaterals

**Square:**Four equal sides and angles are 90 degrees.**Rectangle:**Opposite sides are equal and angles are 90 degrees.**Parallelogram:**Opposite sides are equal and parallel.**Rhombus:**All sides are equal, and opposite angles are equal.**Trapezium:**Only one pair of opposite sides is parallel.

### 3.5 Calculating Perimeter and Area

**Perimeter:**Sum of all sides.**Square:**Perimeter = 4 × side**Rectangle:**Perimeter = 2 × (length + width)**Triangle:**Perimeter = side1 + side2 + side3**Area:****Square:**Area = side × side**Rectangle:**Area = length × width**Triangle:**Area = 1/2 × base × height**Parallelogram:**Area = base × height

## 4. Example

### Example 1: Perimeter of a Rectangle

A rectangle has a length of 8 cm and a width of 5 cm. Calculate the perimeter.

– **Solution:** Perimeter = 2 × (length + width) = 2 × (8 cm + 5 cm) = 2 × 13 cm = 26 cm.

### Example 2: Area of a Triangle

A triangle has a base of 10 cm and a height of 5 cm. Calculate the area.

– **Solution:** Area = 1/2 × base × height = 1/2 × 10 cm × 5 cm = 25 cm².

## 5. Summary or Review Section

- Geometry involves studying points, lines, and shapes.
- Key types of angles include acute, right, obtuse, and straight.
- Triangles are classified as equilateral, isosceles, scalene, or right triangles based on their sides and angles.
- Quadrilaterals include squares, rectangles, parallelograms, rhombuses, and trapeziums.
- The perimeter is the total length around a shape, and the area is the space it encloses.
