tangent

Tangent (abbreviated tan) is a trigonometric ratio, corresponding to the length of the oppsite side divided by the length of the adjacent side of the right triangle.


tangram

A tangram is a traditional Chinese puzzle that can be made into many shapes.


temperature

Temperature is a measure of heat. Temperature is measured using a thermometer.


ten

Ten is the number between nine and eleven. People have ten fingers and ten toes. Our number system is base 10. A ten-sided polygon is called a decagon.


terms

In an expression or equation, terms are numbers, variables, or numbers with variables. For example, the expression 3x has one term, the expression 4x2 + 7 has two terms.


tetrahedron

A tetrahedron is a pyramid formed by four triangles.


thermometer

A thermometer is used for measuring temperature.


third

The third person or item comes after the first and second. Third is abbreviated 3rd.

transversal

A transversal is a line that intersects at least two other lines.


trapezoid

A trapezoid is a four-sided figure (a quadrilateral) with exactly two parallel sides.


triangle

A triangle is a geometric figure (a polygon) that has three sides. The sum of the interior angles of a triangle is 180 degrees. The perimeter of a triangle is the sum of the lengths of the three sides. The area of a triangle is (1/2)base x height. A triangle with three equal sides (and three equal angles) is called an equilateral triangle. A triangle with two equal sides (and two equal angles) is called an isosceles triangle. A triangle with no equal sides (and no equal angles) is called an scalene triangle. A triangle with one right angle is called a right triangle. The Pythagorean theorem states that for a right triangle, the sum of the squares of the two shorter sides is equal to the square of the hypotenuse: a2 + b2 = h2. A triangle with one obtuse angle is called a obtuse triangle. A triangle with all acute angles is called a acute triangle.
2x + 3y - 5z

trinomial

A trinomial is a polynomial expression that has three terms, like 3x2 + 4yz - 5.


trisect

To trisect is to divide into three equal parts. For example, if a 90-degree angle is trisected, the result is three 30-degree angles.
