Ch 13: AFOQT: Lines & Angles

About This Chapter

Take some time and go through this interactive chapter on lines and angles. We designed it to help you with your studying for related math questions on the AFOQT exam.

AFOQT: Lines & Angles - Chapter Summary

We designed our lessons to be interactive, helping you quickly review line segments and the different types of angles prior to taking the AFOQT exam. After completing this chapter, you'll be able to answer questions on the test that deal with:

  • Measurements with lines and rays
  • Using lines and angles to construct geometric shapes
  • Different types of lines and angles
  • Ways of proving lines to be parallel
  • Constructing perpendicular lines
  • Using converse statements
  • Using points not on the given line to construct parallel lines

Enhance your knowledge of angles and lines with short videos in this chapter. They also come with corresponding quizzes, which help you assess your knowledge and determine what math areas you need to work on, if any, before taking the real exam. These resources can be viewed from tablets and smartphones, giving you the ability to study wherever and whenever you are.

Test your knowledge with a 30-question chapter practice test
Line Segments & Rays: Definition & Measurement

1. Line Segments & Rays: Definition & Measurement

Watch this video lesson to learn the difference between a line segment and a ray. You will also learn how to measure and add line segments. Learn why you can't measure or add a ray.

Types of Angles: Vertical, Corresponding, Alternate Interior & Others

2. Types of Angles: Vertical, Corresponding, Alternate Interior & Others

In addition to basic right, acute, or obtuse angles, there are many other types of angles or angle relationships. In this lesson, we will learn to identify these angle relationships and discuss their measurements.

Geometric Constructions Using Lines and Angles

3. Geometric Constructions Using Lines and Angles

Watch this video lesson to learn about geometric construction and how you can copy line segments and angles without using any numbers. All you need is a straight edge and a compass.

Parallel, Perpendicular and Transverse Lines

4. Parallel, Perpendicular and Transverse Lines

What are the different types of lines? Where are they visible in the real world and how can you recognize them? Find out here and test your knowledge with a quiz.

Constructing Perpendicular Lines in Geometry

5. Constructing Perpendicular Lines in Geometry

In this video lesson, you will see how to use geometric construction to draw perpendicular lines. Learn why geometric construction is useful. Also find out the only two tools in addition to your pencil that you need to do this.

Angles Formed by a Transversal

6. Angles Formed by a Transversal

When you have a pair of parallel lines and a transversal, something very interesting happens to the angles that are formed. You can see this happen in real life at street intersections and such. Watch this video lesson to learn about all of this.

Parallel Lines: How to Prove Lines Are Parallel

7. Parallel Lines: How to Prove Lines Are Parallel

Watch this video lesson to learn how you can prove that two lines are parallel just by matching up pairs of angles. Learn which angles to pair up and what to look for.

Using Converse Statements to Prove Lines Are Parallel

8. Using Converse Statements to Prove Lines Are Parallel

Because a pair of parallel lines produces unique angle characteristics, we can use this information to our advantage. Watch this video lesson to see how we turn this advantage into converse statements to help us prove parallel lines.

Constructing a Parallel Line Using a Point Not on the Given Line

9. Constructing a Parallel Line Using a Point Not on the Given Line

Watch this video lesson, and you will learn how to draw parallel lines with just a compass and a straightedge. Also, learn why you would want to be able to do this in real life.
