A **monomial** contains one term, a **binomial** contains two terms, and a **polynomial** contains more than two terms. **Linear** expressions have no exponents. A **quadratic** expression contains variables that are squared (raised to the exponent of 2).

A cylinder is a solid figure with straight parallel sides and a circular or oval cross section with a radius (r) and a height (h). The **volume** of a cylinder is π r^{2}h and the **surface area** is 2(π r^{2}) + 2π rh.

A line segment is a portion of a line with a measurable length. The **midpoint** of a line segment is the point exactly halfway between the endpoints. The midpoint **bisects** (cuts in half) the line segment.

A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with two sets of parallel sides. Opposite sides (a = c, b = d) and angles (red = red, blue = blue) are equal. The area of a parallelogram is base x height and the perimeter is the sum of the lengths of all sides (a + b + c + d).

The Pythagorean theorem defines the relationship between the side lengths of a right triangle. The length of the **hypotenuse** squared (c^{2}) is equal to the sum of the two perpendicular sides squared (a^{2} + b^{2}): c^{2 }= a^{2} + b^{2} or, solved for c, \(c = \sqrt{a + b}\)

A right angle measures 90 degrees and is the intersection of two **perpendicular** lines. In diagrams, a right angle is indicated by a small box completing a square with the perpendicular lines.

A line on the coordinate grid can be defined by a slope-intercept equation: **y = mx + b**. For a given value of x, the value of y can be determined given the **slope** (m) and **y-intercept** (b) of the line. The slope of a line is change in y over change in x, \({\Delta y \over \Delta x}\), and the y-intercept is the y-coordinate where the line crosses the vertical y-axis.

A triangle is a three-sided polygon. It has three interior angles that add up to 180° (a + b + c = 180°). An exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the two interior angles that are opposite (d = b + c). The **perimeter** of a triangle is equal to the sum of the lengths of its three sides, the **height** of a triangle is equal to the length from the **base** to the opposite **vertex** (angle) and the **area** equals one-half triangle base x height: a = ½ base x height.
