# Does anyone know a geometry term that starts with G, J, or N?

We have to make alphabet book things for geometry using geometry terms. For example, for A I used acute angle, for B I used Bisect, and for C I used complementary angle

Relevance

Net

- a 2-D figure that can be folded on its segments or curved on its boundaries to form a 3-D figure; see article here

Network

- a group of nodes and arcs

N-gon

- a polygon with n sides

Node

- a description of a point in a network where it is possible for two different segments to share the same endpoints

Nonagon

- a nine-sided polygon

Nonconvex set

- a set of points in which not all segments connecting points of the set lie entirely in the set; synonym: concave; see convex set

Non-Euclidean geometry

- solid geometry

Non-included side

- the side of a triangle that is not included by 2 given angles

Non-overlapping regions

- regions that don't share interior points

Nonperspective drawing

- a three-dimensional drawing that doesn't use perspective

Null set

- a set with nothing in it

Number line

- a coordinatized line

Geometric mean

- the number g such that for two numbers a and b, a over g = g over b

Given

- information assumed to be true in a proof

Glide reflection

- a type of composite transformation where a figure is reflected and then translated in a parallel direction

Goldback's Conjecture

- if n is an even number greater than 2, then there are always 2 prime numbers whose sum is n

- the tilt of a real-life object in relation to the horizontal, often used to determine how steep a hill is

Graph theory

- the mathematics of complicated networks

Great circle

- the circle formed by the intersection of a sphere and the plane that contains its center and that divides the sphere into two hemispheres; see small circle

Grid

- a tesselation of congruent squares sometimes used to measure distance

and I looked on like 10 different sites and couldn't find a j one...good luck with that!

G- Glide Reflection Golden Ratio Golden Rectangle Great Circle

• I found this geometric figure called the Judd Illusion.

A picture of it can be found here:

http://www.cut-the-knot.org/Curriculum/Geometry/Ju...

Clicking on the link "a few words" below the sliders gives a quick explanation.

Hope that helps. Gotta hate that last outlying word--I remember having to do this about the US Constitution. Uuuugh.

• do you graph things in Geometry? i know it's shapes and stuff, but that was four years ago, so i forget. But that could be a G.

Joint for J? (no, not THAT joint....lol)

Nonagon works for N

• glide reflection-

A glide reflection is a combination of two transformations: a reflection over a line followed by a translation in the same direction as the line.

net-

A net is a two-dimensional representation of a three-dimensional object.

i cant think of any ones that start with j either ^.^"

g - geometer, one who does geometry. I'm not sure if that'll fly, but it's worth a try if you can't find anything else.

n - nonagon, a nine-sided polygon

No thoughts on j yet, but I'll keep thinking.

N-Node or Network

J-Justification

G-Graph theory (ties in with networks)

• N nonagon

G geometric inequalities

J ...cant find anything for J...sorry;

• You might be interested in the list at

http://www.mathwords.com/index_geometry.htm

But, you won't find anything there that begins with "J".
