**Basic Geometrical Ideas**- This chapter will interact about some interesting facts that will help students to know more about the

**shapes**around them. The chapter begins with

**Points**followed by

**A Line Segment**.

- A
**point**determines a location. It is usually denoted by capital letters. - A
**line segment**corresponds to the**shortest distance between two points**.

**Line, Intersecting lines, Parallel lines**is also done in the chapter-

**Basic Geometrical Ideas**.

- Two
**distinct lines**meeting at a**point**are called**intersecting lines**. - Two
**lines**in a**plane**are said to be**parallel**if they do not meet.

**ray, curves,**and

**polygons**.

- A
**ray**is a portion of the**line**starting at a point and going in one direction endlessly. - Any drawing done without lifting the pencil may be called a
**curve.** - A
**curve**is said to be closed if its ends are joined; otherwise, it is said to be open. - A
**polygon**is a simple closed curve made up of**line segments.** - The concept of
**vertex, vertices, adjacent sides, diagonals**is explained.

**angles**, terms associated with it like

**vertex, arms, sides**etc. Not only this, one will come across how to identify the

**interior**and

**exterior of the angle**.

- An
**angle**is made up of two**rays**starting from a**common starting/initial points.**

**triangles, quadrilaterals,**and

**circles**are explained in detail with the help of examples and required diagrams.

- A
**triangle**is a**three-sided polygon**. - A
**quadrilateral**is a**four-sided polygon**. Different terms associated with quadrilateral also needs to be studied like**opposite sides and angles**,**adjacent sides**and**adjacent angles**. - A
**circle**is a path of a point moving at the**same distance from a fixed point.** - A region in the interior of a
**circle**enclosed by an**arc**on one side and a pair of**radii**on the other two sides is called a**sector.** - A region in the
**interior of a circle**enclosed by a**chord**and an**arc**is called a**segment**of the**circle.** - The distance around a circle is its
**circumference**. - A
**diameter**of a**circle**divides it into two equal parts; each part is a**semi-circle.**

**Basic geometrical ideas**are discussed in the end.
