Line Segments & Rays: Definition & Measurement

1. Line Segments & Rays: Definition & Measurement

A line segment is a line with a starting point and endpoint, while a ray is a line with only one endpoint. Learn the definition of line segments and rays, how the distance of line segments is used in measurements, and discover how to add line segments together.

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

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

Understanding angles and angle relationships allows for easier calculation of angle measurement. Learn how to define various types of angles, including vertical, corresponding, alternate interior angles, and how to calculate degree measurement using angle relationships.

Geometric Constructions Using Lines and Angles

3. Geometric Constructions Using Lines and Angles

It is possible to construct different geometric shapes and patterns using lines and angles. Explore the definition of geometric construction, the tools required for the job, and how to copy angles and line segments.

Line Segment Bisection & Midpoint Theorem: Geometric Construction

4. Line Segment Bisection & Midpoint Theorem: Geometric Construction

A line segment is a line with a beginning and an end. In this lesson, the reader will explore the midpoint theorem, that helps you calculate the midpoint of the line segment, how to use geometric construction where you don't know the location of the points of the line segment, and how to bisect a line segment.

Dividing Line Segments into Equal Parts: Geometric Construction

5. Dividing Line Segments into Equal Parts: Geometric Construction

A divided line segment is a straight line that has been divided into equal parts. Learn about the geometric construction of divided line segments and how to use a straightedge and compass to divide line segments into equal parts.

Parallel, Perpendicular and Transverse Lines

6. Parallel, Perpendicular and Transverse Lines

Lines have a specific shape, but there are different types of them according to how they relate to other lines in the same plane. Learn about the different types of lines, including parallel, perpendicular, and transverse lines, and see the formulas you can use to determine the type of line.

Constructing Perpendicular Lines in Geometry

7. Constructing Perpendicular Lines in Geometry

In geometry, it is important to understand and know how to construct perpendicular lines. Learn what perpendicular lines are and discover their geometric construction, their set-up, and their construction process.

Constructing an Angle Bisector in Geometry

8. Constructing an Angle Bisector in Geometry

In geometry, an angle bisector is a line that splits an angle exactly in half. Learn the method of geometric construction, including the process for constructing an angle bisector.
