A cube is a rectangular solid box with a height (h), length (l), and width (w). The **volume** is h x l x w and the **surface area** is 2lw x 2wh + 2lh.

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.

You can only add or subtract monomials that have the same variable and the same exponent. However, you can multiply and divide monomials with unlike terms.

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.
