Geometry in Volleyball
Transcript of Geometry in Volleyball
On the Court
The shape of a volleyball court is the same as a rectangle, and the court is an example of a geometric
. The circle in the center of the court has a
rectangle: a quadrilateral with four right angles.
plane: a flat surface that has no thickness and extends forever.
circumference: the distance around the circle.
line: a line is a straight path that has no thickness and extends forever.
acute angle: any angle who's measure are less than 90˚.
In the net, the red square indicates a set of
and each string of the net is a
Even on a volleyball you can find geometry. The place where the arrow points indicates a
In this position, waiting to bump the ball, you see that your arms create
Before you serve, you stand in a position with the ball in your hand and your arm extended in front of you at an
At the edge of the volleyball court, you can find this angle, which you can see to be an
Right below the net, you can find a
vertical angles: angles that are across from each other when two line intersect. They always have the same angle measurement.
straight angle: angle that is equal to 180˚.
perpendicular bisector: a line that cuts a line segment into two equal parts at 90˚.
intersecting lines: the point where two lines meet or cross.
angle: a shape, formed by two lines or rays diverging from a common point (the vertex).
right angle: angles with measures of exactly 90˚.
