1. Line Segment Lesson Plan
Want a fun way to teach your students about a line segment? Use this lesson plan to guide your instruction on line segments as well as provide practice for measuring line segments with specific formulas.
2. What is a Line Segment in Geometry? - Definition, Formula & Example
Line segments are essential elements to many geometric concepts. In this lesson you will explore line segments in geometry, learn the formula for finding the length of a line segment, review what you've learned with some examples, and test your understanding with a short quiz.
3. Parallel Lines Lesson Plan
How can you tell for sure that lines are parallel? In this lesson plan, you get to show your students what parallel lines are and have them use various ways to prove lines are parallel.
4. 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.
5. Parallel Lines: How to Prove Lines Are Parallel
Watch this video lesson to learn how you can prove that two lines are parallel just by matching up pairs of angles. Learn which angles to pair up and what to look for.
6. Perpendicular Lines Lesson Plan
Educate your students about perpendicular lines and their properties with this lesson plan. Students will watch a video, take a follow-up quiz, and participate in activities that will reinforce main concepts.
7. 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.
8. 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.
9. Parallel & Perpendicular Lines Activities & Games
Parallel and perpendicular lines are fundamental topics in geometry. To give students a strong basis on which to build, we can get them involved in fun activities and games. Here are several ideas for you to try.
10. Parallel Lines & Polygons Activities for High School Geometry
Help your students explore parallel lines and polygons with these engaging activities. This lesson provides you with numerous ideas that will deepen your students' understanding of geometry.
11. Parallel Lines Activities
Understanding what parallel lines are and how they work can be a key aspect of early comprehension of geometry. This lesson offers activities that you can use to teach your students more about parallel lines.
12. Line of Symmetry Lesson Plan
This lesson introduces students to the concept of geometric shapes and lines of symmetry. After watching a video, a discussion, and a short quiz, students will be given the opportunity to find lines of symmetry with a partner.
13. What is a Line of Symmetry in Geometric Shapes?
After viewing this lesson, you should be able to identify shapes that have a line of symmetry in them and know how to find where this line is. A short quiz to test your knowledge will follow the lesson.
14. Parallel & Perpendicular Lines Lesson Plan
Looking for a simple way to jazz up your instruction on parallel and perpendicular lines? This lesson plan will do just that with the help of an engaging Study.com video lesson and a simple yet informative in class activity. To keep going on this plane, consider our suggestions for related lessons and supplementary activities.
15. Parallel Lines Cut by a Transversal Lesson Plan
This lesson plan supports teachers as they guide students through the special relationships between angles formed in a parallel line transversal. Students will engage with video instruction, active practice, and written assessment to learn the concept.
