Geometry is, simply put, the study of shapes. Things like angles, similarity, and area. Of course, geometry is a bit more advanced than just multiplying length times height. You'll also get into conjectures and proofs, which help you prove that various things are related to each other. On top of all Read More

Complementary and Supplementary angles are two types of pairs of angles that appear throughout geometry. Angles are complementary if all of their measures add up to 90 degrees, or a right angle. A pair of angles are supplementary if all of their measures add up to 180 degrees, or a straight line. Read More
