- Line segments and rays
- Points, lines and angles
- Constructing geometric figures with tools, lines and angles
- Bisecting line segments and dividing lines into equal parts
- Types of angles
- Constructing an angle bisector
- Inscribing geometric shapes in circles
After completing these lessons, be sure to take the lesson quizzes so that you can find topics you don't understand. Improve your understanding of the topics by returning to them in the lessons with video tags. If you think you may benefit from an alternative review, read the lesson transcripts for written overviews that identify the key vocabulary of the lessons.
COOP Exam: Properties of Lines Chapter Objectives
The COOP exam is administered to 8th grade students in the state of New Jersey who are seeking admission into Catholic high schools. This entrance exam is used by these schools to measure the student's academic achievement and aptitude, so that they can make informed admission decisions. When you take this exam you will be asked to complete seven subtests, including one about mathematics. Complete these lessons and assessments to study for questions about geometry.
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. Points, Lines & Angles in Geometry
After watching this video lesson, you should understand the basic terms that form the foundation of geometry. Learn what a point is, what a line is, what an angle is, and learn about a special type of angle called a right angle.
3. Practice Making Geometric Constructions with Tools
There are a number of tools available to geometry students to help make their work a bit easier. In this lesson, we will review how to use many of them in order for you to get the most out of every geometry class.
4. 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.
5. Line Segment Bisection & Midpoint Theorem: Geometric Construction
Watch this video lesson and you will learn how to bisect a line segment without measurements using just a compass and a straight edge. You'll also learn about the midpoint theorem, which lets you calculate the midpoint if you have the measurements.
6. Dividing Line Segments into Equal Parts: Geometric Construction
Watch this video lesson to learn one way to easily divide any line segment into as many equal parts as you need. Also, learn where in real life this skill comes in handy.
7. 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.
8. Complementary, Supplementary, Vertical & Adjacent Angles
After watching this video lesson, you will know how to locate complementary, supplementary, vertical, and adjacent angles. You will understand how easy it is to visually see them. You will also know what to look for.
9. Constructing an Angle Bisector in Geometry
Watch this video lesson to learn a cool way to split an angle in half. You can use this method to split a pie slice in half where you can be sure each side is equal.
10. Constructing Equilateral Triangles, Squares, and Regular Hexagons Inscribed in Circles
Constructing an accurate triangle, square, or hexagon within a circle is a matter of a few simple steps, and can be extremely practical. In this lesson, we'll practice the construction of those three shapes.
