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.

Line Segment Bisection & Midpoint Theorem: Geometric Construction

4. 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.

Dividing Line Segments into Equal Parts: Geometric Construction

5. 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.

Parallel, Perpendicular and Transverse Lines

6. 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

7. 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.

Constructing an Angle Bisector in Geometry

8. 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.

Apothem: Definition & Formula

9. Apothem: Definition & Formula

An apothem is a part of a regular polygon. Through definitions, formulas, and examples, we will learn what an apothem is and how it can be used to analyze a regular polygon.
