What are Parallel Lines? - Definition & Concept

1. What are Parallel Lines? - Definition & Concept

In this lesson, you will learn about parallel lines and how you can identify and label them. You'll also find out how they are similar to things found in everyday life.

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

2. 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.

Graphs of Parallel and Perpendicular Lines in Linear Equations

3. Graphs of Parallel and Perpendicular Lines in Linear Equations

When we deal with linear equations, we sometimes come across equations that are parallel to each other or perpendicular to each other. You will see what they look like when graphed in this video lesson.

What are Perpendicular Lines? - Definition & Meaning

4. What are Perpendicular Lines? - Definition & Meaning

Perpendicular lines are shaped like a 'T' and have special properties that non-perpendicular lines don't have. Because of these special properties, it is important to be able to distinguish perpendicular lines from those that aren't. In this lesson, we will explore ways to determine whether or not two lines are perpendicular.

Perpendicular Slope: Definition & Examples

5. Perpendicular Slope: Definition & Examples

Review what perpendicular lines are and what the slope of a line is. Learn about the relationship between slopes of perpendicular lines through definitions and examples.

Line Segments & Rays: Definition & Measurement

6. 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.

Parallel, Perpendicular and Transverse Lines

7. 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.

What is a Right Angle? - Definition & Formula

8. What is a Right Angle? - Definition & Formula

In this lesson, you will learn about the properties that identify right angles. You will also discover where right angles can be found and learn about what makes them so useful. You can then test your knowledge with a quiz.

What is an Acute Angle? - Definition, Description & Examples

9. What is an Acute Angle? - Definition, Description & Examples

In this lesson, you'll learn what makes an angle acute and see a few different examples of them. After the lesson, you can test your new knowledge with a brief quiz.

What is an Obtuse Angle? - Definition & Examples

10. What is an Obtuse Angle? - Definition & Examples

In this lesson, you'll learn what angles, right angles, and obtuse angles are; you'll see a few examples of different obtuse angles. Test your knowledge with a brief quiz once you've completed the lesson.

Complementary Angles: Definition, Theorem & Examples

11. Complementary Angles: Definition, Theorem & Examples

In this lesson, we will define complementary angles and see how they may appear in diagrams. We will discuss two common theorems that involve complementary angles. Then you can test your knowledge with a quiz.

Supplementary Angle: Definition & Theorem

12. Supplementary Angle: Definition & Theorem

There are many important angle pairs in geometry. In this lesson, we'll learn about supplementary angles, including what they are, where they are used, and why you need to know about them.

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

13. 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.

What Are Adjacent Angles? - Definition & Examples

14. What Are Adjacent Angles? - Definition & Examples

In this lesson, you will learn how to identify whether angles are adjacent. After looking at several examples, you will be able to test your knowledge with a quiz.

Congruent Angles: Definition & Examples

15. Congruent Angles: Definition & Examples

In this lesson, we'll explore the definition of a congruent angle. You'll learn how to draw a congruent angle, explore examples of congruent angles, and test your knowledge with a short quiz.
