Points, Lines, and Planes

Don’t forget the ways we name points, lines, and planes!

Capital, print letters for points; lowercase, script (cursive) letters or two points it goes through for lines; capital, script (cursive) letters for planes, or 3 noncollinear points on the plane.

Every word in a definition is critical to understanding a concept.  Make sure you understand the effects or constraints each word creates by being part of a definition.

Don’t forget the symbols that we use to tell the difference between lines, line segments, and rays!  Be consistent and precise!

Try to ask yourself is a statement is Always, Sometimes, or Never true, and be ready to provide examples (supporting evidence) or counter examples.
