1. Line Segment: Lesson for Kids
When you go to the grocery store you stand in a line. When you go to a movie, you also stand in a line. At an amusement park, you stand in a lot of lines! But did you know that in math, those aren't really lines at all - they're line segments!
2. Angles Formed by Intersecting Lines
When two lines intersect, there are many different types of angles that may be created. Some you already may have learned about, and others you may never have heard of before. Many types of angles are shown and defined herein.
3. Coincident Lines: Definition & Examples
There are lines in grocery stores, on a football field, and even on older people's foreheads. However, there are lines in math too. Some are parallel, some are perpendicular, some are oblique and some are even hidden. Let's learn about hidden lines!
4. What is an Oblique Line?
In this lesson, you'll learn about a special kind of a line called an oblique line and how it differs from other types of lines. You'll also find out what oblique lines have to do with the Leaning Tower of Pisa!
