 ProtractorA geometric tool used to draw and measure angles

 ArcAn arc is a part of a circle. The arc is shown in orange.

 Algorithm for multiplication

 Measure of an angleThe angle on the right measures 150 degrees 150 degrees

 Equation A mathematical sentence with an equal sign. The equal sign separates the left side from the right side. The amount on the left side of the equation is always equal to the amount on the right side. 4  + 6 = 10                                1 + 12 = 13                                20 = 9 + 11

 Mixed numberA mixed number has 2 parts. First it has a whole number that is 2. Second, it has a fraction that is 4/5

 Formulas Area and perimeter of a rectangle Area  = length x widthPerimeter = 2 x length + 2 x width

 CircleIn a circle, you can put points anywhere on the purple arc. These points will be at the same distance from the fixed black point called center.

 TenthsThe tenths place is shown in red. The 2 means that 2 parts are colored out of 10. 8.29

 Composite numberA number with more than 2 factors. Factors of 8 are 1, 2, 4, and 8.8 is a composite number since it has 4 factors or 4 numbers than can divide it evenly 12                                             9                                   8
