A tangram is a traditional Chinese puzzle that can be made into many shapes. temperatureTemperature is a measure of heat. Temperature is measured using a thermometer. tenTen 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. termsIn 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. tetrahedronA tetrahedron is a pyramid formed by four triangles. thermometerA thermometer is used for measuring temperature. thirdThe third person or item comes after the first and second. Third is abbreviated 3rd. 13*************thirteenThirteen is the number after twelve (12) and before fourteen (14). A thirteen-sided polygon is called a tridecagon. 30******************************thirtyThirty is the number after twenty nine (29) and before thirty one (31). A thirty-sided polygon is called an triacontagon.

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