Plane Geometry
Plane geometry, also known as twodimensional geometry, is a branch of mathematics that focuses on the properties and relationships of points, lines, angles, and shapes in a twodimensional plane. It is a fundamental area of study in mathematics and has many practical applications in fields such as engineering, architecture, physics, and computer graphics. Plane geometry begins with basic concepts such as points, lines, and planes, and then progresses to more complex topics such as angles, triangles, polygons, circles, and conic sections. The study of plane geometry involves the use of axioms and postulates to prove theorems and derive formulas that describe the properties and relationships of various geometric shapes and figures. Overall, plane geometry provides a foundation for understanding the geometry of the physical world around us and plays a crucial role in many areas of science, engineering, and technology.
Some important concepts in plane geometry include:
 Parallel lines and their relationship to angles and transversals
 Congruent and similar figures
 Properties of triangles, such as the Pythagorean theorem, and the relationship between angles and side lengths
 Properties of circles, such as the relationship between angles, arcs, and chords
 The use of coordinate geometry to describe the location and properties of points, lines, and shapes on a plane.
