About This Chapter

The Introduction to Geometric Figures chapter of this High School Geometry Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about the basics of geometric figures. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach all of the operations involving geometric figures basics required in a typical high school geometry course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other high school geometry work.
  • Identify the introductory geometric figures concepts that you're stuck on.
  • Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
  • Press play, watch and learn!
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

Who's it for?

This chapter of our high school geometry tutoring solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn geometric figures basics and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding line segments and rays; points, lines and angles; or any other introduction to geometric figures topic
  • Have limited time for studying
  • Want a cost effective way to supplement their math learning
  • Prefer learning math visually
  • Find themselves failing or close to failing their introduction to geometric figures unit
  • Cope with ADD or ADHD
  • Want to get ahead in high school geometry
  • Don't have access to their math teacher outside of class

Why it works:

  • Engaging Tutors: We make learning geometric figures basics simple and fun.
  • Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
  • Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live algebra tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
  • Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn geometric figures basics on the go!
  • Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.

Learning objectives

  • Define basic vocabulary terms in geometry as well as rays and line segments.

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.
