Definition of Perspective

Perspective refers to a way that a drawing on a flat surface can be made to look three-dimensional.

Some techniques for creating this illusion include the use of converging lines, and making objects that are further away smaller and placing them higher in the drawing.

Students learn a new math skill every week at school, sometimes just before they start a new skill, if they want to look at what a specific term means, this is where this dictionary will become handy and a go-to guide for a student.
