Conjunction (And Statements)
Squares are parallelograms and trapezoids are circles
 BOTH PARTS must be true to be true
T and F therefore the statement is false!


Equation of a circle (MEMORIZE THISS!)
 where (h, k) is the center
 r = radius

Disjunction (or Statements)
Squares are parallelograms OR trapezoids are circles.
One piece needs to be true for this to be true
T or F therefore the statement is TRUE.

5 ways to prove congruent triangles
 SSS
 SAS
 AAS
 ASA
 HL (need to prove right triangles first)
Can't use A.A.A or ASS!!

How do you find the length of the altitude in the diagram above?

Sum of Interior angles of Any Polygon
180(number of sides2)

Sum of exterior angles in any polygon
ALWAYS ADDS TO 360

How do you find the measure of ONE EXTERIOR ANGLE of a polygon
360/number of sides

How many degrees is EACH angle in an equilateral triangle
60 degrees

What are things we know about rhombi?
all sides CONGRUENT
Diagonals are perpendicular
Diagonals bisect the angles
It is a special parallelogram

What do we know about squares?
they have all the proprties of a rectangle and a rhombus. Most importantly:
 90 DEGREE ANGLES
 DIAGONALS ARE PERPENDICULAR
 Diagonals are CONGRUENT
 All sides are congruent

How do you prove something is a TRAPEZOID on a coordinate grid?
It has one pair of parallel sides.
It has one pair of NON PARALLEL SIDES.

What must be true about the side lenghts of a triangle...
E.X: Which of the following lengths can create a triangle?
a) {3,6,2}
b) {3,6,8}
The sum of the two smaller sides must be larger than the longest side!
3 + 2 is less than 6 (so A wont make a triangle)
choice B will make a triangle!

What do we know about SIMILAR FIGURES?
Corresponding ANGLES are CONGRUENT
Ratio of sides = ratio of perimeters = ratio of altitudes
 (Ratio of sides)^{2}= ratio of areas
 (ratio of sides)^{3}= ratio of volumes

HOW can you prove triangles are SIMILAR (~)
(the S in this case meas CORRESPONDING sides are PROPORTIONAL)

Angles/ Side lenghts in triangles
Smallest side opposite smallest angle
Largest side opposite largest angle

What is the locus of points that are a fixed distance from a point "P"?
THINK BRAD AND HIS LIZARD ON A LEASH!!


Midpoint formula
or
(average the x's, average the y's)
MAKE SURE IT MAKES SENSE BY GRAPHING IT

What is an isometry?
a transformation that PRESERVES SIZE
the only transformation that is NOT an isometry is a Dilation!


Converse
Flip
(you can do FLIPS IN CONVERSE SNEAKERS)

CONTRAPOSITIVE
Logically equivalent to the original
FLIP AND NEGATE

What is a glide reflection?
It is a transformation that combines a TRANSLATION (glide) and a REFLECTION

Area of a Circle!
A = pi*r^{2}


Area of a Trapezoid
 or
A = (average of the bases times the height)

What do we know about the slopes of PARALLEL LINES?
THEY ARE THE SAME!

What do we know about the slopes of PERPENDICULAR LINES?
negative reciprocals (flip and change sign)
for example a line with m=2 is perpendicular to a line with a slope of m=1/2

What is the Lateral Area of a Cone or a Cylinder?
It is the "wrapper". It does not include the bases.
The Lateral area formulas for BOTH the cone and the Cylinder are on your reference table.
Note: To get the complete surface area you must add on the bases.

How many degrees are in ANY quadrilateral?
360

Supplementary
Adds to 180 degrees

Complimentary Angles
adds to 90

Linear Pair
Two angles who create a line (they add to 180)

What does bisect mean?
To cut in half
(makes two EQUAL pieces)

Similar Right Triangls
How do you find the length of the altitude in the diagram.

How do you solve a system of equations graphically?
 1. Solve both equations for y.
 2. Graph them on your graphing calculator and use your table to graph them on the coordinate grid.
 3. Locate the points of intersection, circle them and then RECORD THEM!

What is the locus of points equidistant from a POINT?
THINK BRAD WITH HIS LIZARD ON THE LEASH! (it makes a circle!!!)

What is the locus of points equidistant from a single line?
Two lines that run parallel to it

What is the locus of points equdistant from two points?
The PERPENDICULAR BISECTOR of the segment that connects them.

What is the point of concurrency for the perpendicular bisectors of a triangle?
Circumcenter

What s the point of concurrency for the ANGLE bisectors of a tangle
INCENTER
this point is EQUIDISTANT from the sides of a triangle

What is a median of a triangle?
It connects the vertex of a triangle to the midpoint of the opposite side

What is the Point of concurrency of the MEDIANS of a triangle
 Pieces are in the 2:1 Ratio
 (2x + x = median length)

What do we know about Central Angles in a circle
< = intercepted arc

What do we know about INSCRIBED ANGLES?
 < = 1/2(arc)

How do you find the valu of x in the diagram below?
x = 1/2 (sum of the arcs)

How do you find the measure of angles outside a circle, formed by two tangents or secats?

How do you find the measure of <1
<1 is half Arc AB
< 1 = 65

What do you know about angles in the polygon below?
Opposite angles add to 180
<E + <G = 180

What is the equation of a LINE?
y = mx + b
 Where m is the SLOPE and
 b is the y intercept!

What do we know about this picture?

 FH = DH
 and Arc FG = Arc GD
 and Arc ED = Arc EF

What euation can we use to find the lengths of the chords in the diagram below?
 piece*piece = piece*piece

What equation can we use to find lenghts in this diagram?
External * Whole = External * Whole

Identify the two congruent chords in the diagram below
