- Students who have fallen behind in understanding lines and angles in geometry
- Students who struggle with learning disabilities or learning differences, including autism and ADHD
- Students who prefer multiple ways of learning math (visual or auditory)
- Students who have missed class time and need to catch up
- Students who need an efficient way to learn about lines and angles
- Students who struggle to understand their teachers
- Students who attend schools without extra math learning resources

Students Will Review:
This chapter helps students review the concepts in a lines and angles unit of a standard geometry course. Topics covered include:
- Differences between line segments and rays
- Defining parallel, perpendicular and transverse lines
- Identifying the properties of various geometrical angles
- Learning to measure angles with a protractor
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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. How to Measure Angles with a Protractor
You're surrounded by angles at home, at school, and even when you're walking down the street. In this lesson, you'll learn how to measure different angles using a protractor.
