• Parallel lines

Two lines that are both vertical or have equal slopes.

• Polar coordinate system

A coordinate system whose ordered pair is based on the directed distance from a central point (the pole) and the angle measured from a ray from the pole (the polar axis)

• Positive angle

Angle generated by a counterclockwise rotation.

• Pythagorean

Theorem In a right triangle with sides a and b and hypotenuse c, c2 = a2 + b2
