### Chapter 1 - Tools of Geometry

Chapter 1 Overview

Students begin their study of geometry by learning to reason inductively. They will use the undeﬁned terms point, line, and plane in postulates about segments, rays, lines, planes, and angles. Students will learn how to measure segments and angles and how to use a compass and straightedge to construct geometric ﬁgures. Finally, they will ﬁnd distance on the coordinate plane algebraically and calculate the circumference, perimeter, and area of geometric ﬁgures.

What You’ll Learn Next

- In this chapter, you will learn how to make plausible conclusions based on patterns you observe.
- You will learn the foundation blocks for the structure of geometry.
- These foundations will provide you with ways to measure segments and angles.
- You will also learn to use constructions and the coordinate plane to represent geometric ﬁgures.
