What are Parallel Lines? - Definition & Concept

1. 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.

What are Perpendicular Lines? - Definition & Meaning

2. 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.

What is a Line Segment in Geometry? - Definition, Formula & Example

3. 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.

Line Segments & Rays: Definition & Measurement

4. 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.

Parallel, Perpendicular and Transverse Lines

5. 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.

What is a Right Angle? - Definition & Formula

6. What is a Right Angle? - Definition & Formula

In this lesson, you will learn about the properties that identify right angles. You will also discover where right angles can be found and learn about what makes them so useful. You can then test your knowledge with a quiz.

What is an Acute Angle? - Definition, Description & Examples

7. What is an Acute Angle? - Definition, Description & Examples

In this lesson, you'll learn what makes an angle acute and see a few different examples of them. After the lesson, you can test your new knowledge with a brief quiz.

What is an Obtuse Angle? - Definition & Examples

8. What is an Obtuse Angle? - Definition & Examples

In this lesson, you'll learn what angles, right angles, and obtuse angles are; you'll see a few examples of different obtuse angles. Test your knowledge with a brief quiz once you've completed the lesson.

Complementary Angles: Definition, Theorem & Examples

In this lesson, we will define complementary angles and see how they may appear in diagrams. We will discuss two common theorems that involve complementary angles. Then you can test your knowledge with a quiz.

Supplementary Angle: Definition & Theorem

10. Supplementary Angle: Definition & Theorem

There are many important angle pairs in geometry. In this lesson, we'll learn about supplementary angles, including what they are, where they are used, and why you need to know about them.

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

11. 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.

What Are Adjacent Angles? - Definition & Examples

12. What Are Adjacent Angles? - Definition & Examples

In this lesson, you will learn how to identify whether angles are adjacent. After looking at several examples, you will be able to test your knowledge with a quiz.
