Section 1

Question Answer
central anglean angle with its vertex at the center of the circle
minor arcmeasure of the central angle
semi circlemeasure = 180
chorda line segment that joins 2 points on the circumference of a circle
diameterchord that passes through the center of a circle
inscribed angleformed by 2 chords that meet on the same point in a circle
tangentline in the plane of a circle that touches circle in exactly one point. point of tangency
secantline that contains a chord
sectora region bounded by 2 radii and an arc of the circle
isometrya transformation of a geometric figure that preserves length and angle measure of the figure and its image under the transformation

Section 2

Question Answer
rotationone point is fixed and the image points are transformed to a negative position
reflectiontransformed as a mirror image
translationeach point is moved the same distance in the same direction from the original point
glide reflectionthe product of a reflection and then a translation
tessellationcreated when a shape is continuously repeated on a plane without any gaps or overlaps
eschertessellations = tiling
pure tessellationcreated using only one shape
semi pure tessellationinvolves more than one type of polygon
semiregular tessellationformed by 2 or more regular polygons. the arrangement of polygons at every vertex point is identical
diametera line segment that passes through the center of a circle and whose endpoint lie on the circle

central angleangle formed by 2 radii drawn to consecutive vertices
apothemthe perpendicular distance from the center of the polygon to a side
area of a regular polygonhalf the product of the apothem and the perimeter
equation of a circle(x-h)^2 + (y-k)^2 = r^2 h and k are the x and y of the center of the circle
mediansegment from a vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side
centroidwhere the 3 medians intersect
