2. We may think of a point as a "dot" on a piece of paper. We identify this point with a number or letter. A point has no length or width, it just specifies an exact location. In a textbook we could see a point like this: Point The point image was found at Google.com.

3. Point-Man MadePyramid This ancient building is has a man made point on the top. The image was found at Google.com.

4. POINT-NaturalMountain Top A mountain tip is an example of natural point. The image was found at Google.com.

5. Two lines in the same plane which never intersect are called parallel lines. We say that two line segments are parallel if the lines that they lie on are parallel. In a textbook we could see parallel lines like this: Parallel Lines The parallel line image was found at Google.com.

6. Parallel Lines-Man MadeRailroad Tracks A railway track is an example of man made parallel lines because the distance has to stay the same in order for the train to travel on them. The image was found at Google.com.

7. Parallel Lines-NaturalPalm Trees The growth of the palm trees are forming parallel lines. The trees never cross or intersect on another. The image was found at Google.com.

8. A pythagorean triple is a set of three integers a, b, c such that a2 + b2 = c2. In a textbook we could see a pythagorean triple like this: Pythagorean Triple This image was found at Google.com.

9. Pythagorean Triple-Man MadeKite The outlined part of this kite is an example of pythagorean triple. This image was found at Google.com.

10. Pythagorean Triple-NaturalOrange The inside of the orange contains a right triangle. This image was found at Google.com.

11. A geometric pattern that is repeated at ever smaller scales to produce irregular shapes and surfaces that cannot be represented by classical geometry. Fractals are used especially in computer modeling of irregular patterns and structures in nature. In a textbook we could see a fractal like this: Fractal This image was found at Google.com.

12. Fractal-Man MadeRug This braded rug is an example of man made fractal between the patterns repeat themselves. This image was found at Google.com.

13. Fractal-NaturalBroccoli Broccoli is an example of natural fractal figure because of the designs it contains. This image was found at Google.com.

14. An oval is an egg-shaped or elliptical form or figure. In a textbook we could see an oval like this: Oval This image was found at Google.com.

15. Oval-Man MadeServing Tray The serving tray is a shape of an oval. This image was found at Google.com.

16. Oval-Natural Eggs The eggs are shaped like an oval. This image was found at Google.com.

17. Two figures are congruent if they have the same shape and size. In a textbook we could see congruent items like this: Congruent Items This images were found at Google.com.

18. Congruent Items- Man MadeTeddy bears The two teddy bears are the same shape and size. This image was found at Google.com.

19. Congruent Items- NaturalBees The two bees are congruent because they have the same shape and size. This image was found at Google.com.

20. Ray This image was found on Google.com. We may think of a ray as a "straight" line that begins at a certain point and extends forever in one direction. The point where the ray begins is known as its endpoint. We write the name of a ray with endpoint A and passing through a point B as "ray AB“. In a textbook we could see a ray like this:

21. Ray-Man MadeOne Way Sign This arrow in this sign is an example of man made ray. This image was found at Google.com.

22. Ray-NaturalFlower The lines on this flower are the natural rays. This image was found at Google.com.

23. A pentagon is a five-sided polygon. The sum of the angles of a pentagon is 540 degrees. In a textbook we could see a pentagon like this: Pentagon This image was found at Google.com.

24. Pentagon- Man MadeHouse The house is in a shape of a pentagon. It contains five sides. This image was found at Google.com.

25. Pentagon- NaturalRocks The rock at the bottom has five sides. This image was found at Google.com.

26. An ellipse is a closed plane curve resulting from the intersection of a circular cone and a plane cutting completely through it. In a textbook we could see an ellipse like this: Ellipse The ellipse is a clip art picture found at Google.com.

27. Ellipse- Man MadePlastic Easter Eggs The Easter eggs have to stay as realistic as possible to the form of a regular egg. The picture of the Easter eggs was found at Google.com

28. Ellipse-NaturalOrbit of the Planets The planets must travel in an ellipse shape in order to maintain balance. The picture of this orbit was found at http://www.vt-2004.org/mt-2003/mt-mercury-orbit.html.

29. A prism is a space figure with two congruent, parallel bases that are polygons. In a textbook we could see a prism like this: Prism The prisms is a clip art picture found at Google.com.

30. Prism-Man MadeA Tent A tent is composed of two congruent parallel bases (the bases are triangles) and has the same cross section all along its length. This picture was found at Google.com.

31. Prism- NaturalDiamond The diamond varies in proportion from a square to a thin rectangular shape. The picture was found at Google.com

32. A line extends forever in both directions. We write the name of a line passing through two different points A and B as "line AB" or as , the two-headed arrow over AB signifying a line passing through points A and B. In a textbook we could find a line like this: Line The line is a clip art picture found at Google.com.

33. Line-Man MadeRope The rope must be a straight line in order for the man to come down. The picture was found in clipart.

34. Line-NaturalCactus The growing thorns on the cactus form a line. The picture was found at Google.com.

35. Transversal A transversal is a line that passes through (transverses) two other lines. In a textbook we could see a transversal like this: The transversal is a clip art picture found at Google.com.

36. Transversal- Man MadeMap The blue street is intersecting the parallel streets at two different times. This picture was found at Google.com.

37. Transversal- NaturalSpider Web The spider web consist of lines that are intersected by other lines in more than two occasions. The picture of the spider web was at Goggle.com.

39. Quadrilateral-Man MadePicture Frame The picture frame contains four sides which makes it a quadrilateral. The picture was found in clip art.

40. Quadrilateral- NaturalGlacier The glacier is a quadrilateral because it has four sides. This picture was found at Google.com.

41. Figures that have the same shape are called similar figures. They may be different sizes or turned somewhat. In a textbook we could see similar items like this: Similar Items The similar items is a clip art picture found at Google.com.

42. Similar Items- Man MadePants Both pants are the same shape, but different size. The picture was found at Google.com.
