Title Description
Decagon A 10-sided polygon is called a decagon. Play_video
Deductive Logic Deductive Logic is employed before events have transpired, before the fact. Play_video
Degree, Angle One 360th of a full rotation is an angle of one degree. Play_video
Diagonal Convex polygons have Diagonals from each vertex to each non-adjoining vertex. Play_video
Dilation To grow in size is to dilate, or to undergo Dilation.
Most often it means to increase proportionally in all dimensions, but not strictly.
Sometimes Dilation is expansion in one dimension only.
Play_video
Dimension A line has one Dimension.
A plane has two Dimensions.
A three-dimensional object occupies space.
Play_video
Directrix A line specific to conic sections hyperbolas, parabolas, and ellipses, known as a Directrix, serves to describe along with the location of the focus (or foci) the loci (points) on the graph of the function. Play_video
Disk A Disk is most often a circular object with a relatively thin measure in the direction orthogonal to the plane of the circular bases. Play_video
Distance A length from one point to another is considered a Distance.
Any measurement in one dimension confers a length, which is Distance.
Play_video
Dodecagon A 12-sided polygon is a Decagon. Play_video
Dodecahedron A 12-faced polyhedron is called a Dodecahedron. Play_video
