Mathematical objects such as points and lines are coplanar if the lie in the same plane.^{[1]} In manipulative 1, lines A and B are coplanar with each other and with point C. Point D and line E are not coplanar with A, B, and C. Objects that are not in the same plane are called noncoplanar. The grey parallelogram in manipulative 1 represents a portion of a plane. Click on the yellow points in manipulative 1 and drag them to change the figure. The yellow point labeled 'rotate' rotates the plane.
