PLANE FIGURE GEOMETRY
(Chapter 2)
If we look carefully we notice angles in many objects and situations.
For example, we see angles in building frameworks, pitches in roof structures, steepness of
ramps, and the positioning of boats and aeroplanes from their home bases.
Angle measurement dates back more than 2500 years and is still very important today in
architecture, building, surveying, engineering, navigation, space research, etc.
DEGREE MEASURE
To measure the size of angles accurately we use a small unit of measure. This unit is called
a degree.
There are 360 degrees, 360o , in one complete turn or revolution. Degrees have been used
from ancient Babylonian times when all the numbers were written and calculated in base 60.
360o is a useful measure because it is divisible by 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, etc., and this
makes it easy to find fractions of 360o such as halves, thirds, quarters, and so on.
OPENING PROBLEM
There are four posts at the corners A,
B, C and D of a paddock with a raised
mound as shown. The distances
between the posts are easily measured
and are shown on the figure.

Things to discuss, think about and do:
² Is knowing the lengths of the four sides enough to accurately redraw the figure? Try
doing this using millimetres instead of metres.
² What other facts are necessary to accurately redraw the figure?
² How would you accurately measure the four angles at A, B, C and D in the real world?
² How would you accurately measure the four angles of the figure on paper?
² If the angle at A is known to be 100o , could you accurately peg out on the school oval
1
th scale model of paddock ABCD? You may only use four pegs, a large measuring
a 10
tape (as used on athletics days) and an angle measuring device (such as a theodolite or
modern laser equipment).

TURNING
Many machines are operated with a dial showing different settings. The dial is rotated in
order for the machine to perform a particular operation.

an ‘off’ position, as shown.

MEASURING ANGLES
An angle is made up of two arms which meet at
a point called the vertex.
arm
The size of the angle is measured by using the
amount of turning (rotation) from one arm to the
other.

To use a protractor to measure angles we:
² place it so its centre is at the angle’s vertex and 0o lies
exactly on one arm
² start at 0o and follow the direction the angle turns through
to reach the other arm.

PLANE SHAPES
A shape that is drawn on a flat surface or plane is
called a plane figure.
If the shape has no beginning or end it is said to be
closed.
We can use properties like these to classify objects.

a It is closed and has straight line sides, so it is a polygon.
b It does not have all straight line sides, so it is not a polygon.
c
It is not closed and so it is not a polygon.
Polygons are named according to the number of
sides they have. For example, a 9 sided polygon
can be called a 9-gon. However, many polygons
are known by other more familiar names. Here

CIRCLES
Suppose we make a loop from a length of light rope and place it over a fixed spike in the
ground. The rope is made taut and a stick is placed at the opposite end to the fixed spike.
By keeping the rope taut and moving the stick around the spike, a circle is produced.
The fixed spike is the circle’s centre.
This method of drawing a circle was known
and used by builders in ancient Egypt.
Parts of a circle
this is a circle
this is the circle’s centre (and is often not drawn)
this is a radius which joins the circle’s centre to
any point on the circle
AB is a diameter of the circle as it passes through
the circle’s centre and its end points lie on the circle

GEOMETRICAL IDEAS
What to do:
1 In the classroom find two examples of each of the following:
² a point
² a line
² an angle
² a flat surface
² a curved surface
2 Discuss the following:
² What is meant by a point?
I
² How small can a point be?
POINTS AND LINES
POINTS IN GEOMETRY
Examples of a point in the classroom are:
² the intersection of two adjacent walls and the floor
² a speck of dust in the room at a particular instant in time.
In geometry, a point could be represented by a small dot. To help identify it we could name
it with or assign a capital letter.
Consider:
The letters A, B and C are useful for identifying
points to which we are referring.
B
We can make statements like:
“the distance from A to B is .....” or
“the angle at B measures .....”, etc.
A
C
a point marks a position and does not have any size.
To a mathematician,
FIGURES AND VERTICES
A
Any special collection of points in a plane (flat
surface) is called a figure.
The figure alongside contains four points which
have been labelled A, B, C and D. These corner
points are also known as vertices.

LINES
What to do:
Discuss the following questions:
1 How many different straight lines could be drawn through a single point?
2 Suppose A and B are two different points. How many straight lines can
be drawn such that each line passes through both A and B?
STRAIGHT LINES
A straight line (usually called a line) is a continuous infinite collection of points
which lie in a particular direction.
B
This line which passes through points A and B is
called “line AB” or “line BA”.
A
A
This part line which joins points A and B is called
“line segment AB” or “line segment BA”.
B
Note:
²
When three or more points lie on a line we say
that the points are collinear. The points A, B, C
and D shown are collinear.
²
If three or more lines meet (intersect) at the same
point we say that the lines are concurrent. The
lines shown are concurrent at point B.

PARALLEL AND INTERSECTING LINES
Imagine a plane, like a table top, which goes
on indefinitely in all directions, i.e., it has
no boundaries. In such a plane, two straight
lines are either parallel or intersecting. Arrow heads are used to show parallel lines.

Parallel lines are lines which are always a fixed distance apart and so never meet.
