1. What Are Intersecting Lines? - Definition & Examples
In this lesson, you'll learn the geometric definition of a line. You'll also learn what intersecting lines are and view a few examples of them. Then, you can test your knowledge in a brief quiz.
2. 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.
3. Skew Lines in Geometry: Definition & Examples
In this lesson, learn the definition of skew lines. You will also learn tips for differentiating skew lines from parallel lines, as well as look at some examples.
4. Perpendicular Bisector Theorem: Proof and Example
Perpendicular bisectors are multifunctional lines. They're not only perpendicular to the line in question, they also neatly divide it into two equal halves. In this lesson, we'll learn about the perpendicular bisector theorem.
5. How to Find the Distance Between Two Points
After watching this video lesson, you will be able to find the distance between any two points on the coordinate plane. Learn what information you and how to plug them in to your formula.
6. 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.
7. Identifying Proportional Line Segments
We can identify proportional line segments by verifying that their lengths satisfy certain properties and by using helpful corollaries and theorems. This lesson will discuss each of these ways of identifying proportional line segments.
8. 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.
9. Lines & Planes in Space
In this lesson you will look at lines and planes in 3-dimensional space and learn about how they can be identified by objects in the real world. You will also learn about some relationships between pairs of planes and pairs of lines, and how they look in some real world examples.
