Geometric Constructions Using Lines and Angles

1. 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

2. 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

3. 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.

Constructing Perpendicular Lines in Geometry

4. 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.

Parallel Lines: How to Prove Lines Are Parallel

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.
