# Ch 30: 8th Grade Math: Introduction to Geometric Figures

This chapter utilizes short, interesting videos to teach eighth graders how to make geometric constructions and define points, lines and angles. If your student needs further clarification, they can submit questions to an instructor.

## 8th Grade Math: Introduction to Geometric Figures - Chapter Summary

Your eighth grader can use the straightforward and brief videos found in this chapter to bolster their knowledge of angles and line segments. Students will receive instruction on angle types and line bisection, as well as be able to practice constructing geometric figures. The available quizzes and worksheets can be accessed at any point during the lesson, to test student knowledge or practice concepts.
