torus a 3d shape like the shape of a doughnut
torus
total sum
transformation when a change is made to a shape to move or make a new shape:translate, reflect, rotate, enlarge
translation transformation of sliding a shape
transpose to replace
transversal a line that crosses two or more lines
trapeziod a quadrilateral where no sides are equal
trapeziodal rule used to find an approximate area under a curve A ≈ h/2{f(a) + f(b) + 2(sum of the function of all the other ordinates)}
trapezium quadrilateral with one pair of opposite sides parallel . The area of a trapezium is given by:   A = h/2(a + b), where a and b are the two parallel sides and h is the perpendicular distance between them. If the two non-parallel sides are equal, then it is an isosceles trapezium
trap
travel graph a straight line graph used to show distance travelled. Time is displayed on the horizontal axis, and distance from a certain point on the vertical axis. A horizontal line on a travel graph means that they are stopped, not travelling.
tree diagram a diagram to display the probabilities and outcomes of an event
treediagram

triangular pyramid pyramid with a triangular base. It has four faces, four vertices and six edges
tetrahedron
trig abbreviated form of trigonometry
trigonometry area of study dealing with relationships between angles and side lengths
trinomial any algebraic expression with three terms
truncated to be shortened or ‘chopped off’. A truncated decimal is a rounded decimal. The diagram shows a truncated cone.
truncatedcone
turning point the point of a curve where the tangent to the curve at that point is horizontal. Turning points are found by setting dy/dx = 0
