Construct a horizontal segment AB.
Construct a slanted segment CD
that intersects segment AB.
Choose each segment, construct
"point at intersection", label as X.
Choose segment CD, construct
"point on object" (make sure point is below point X),
label as Y.
Choose segment AB and point
Y, construct "parallel line".
Choose this line, construct "point
on object" (make sure this point is to the left of point
Y), label as M.
Choose this line again, construct
"point on object" (make sure this point is to the right
of point Y), label as N.
Choose points M and N,
Choose the line outside of segment
MN, display "hide line".
Your picture should look
like the one shown below.
(the angle numbers will
not be on your screen).
Segment CD is a
angles are .
The exterior angles are .
Name all the sets of vertical angles.
Name all the sets of linear pairs.
Meaure all the angles.
The alternate interior angles are , and , .
What can you conclude about these
The consecutive interior angles are
, and ,
The alternate exterior angles are
, and ,
The consecutive exterior angles are , and , .
The corresponding angles are , and , and , and , .
Work the problems below
and show all work.
= 3x + 8 and 6 = 11x + 4,
(show work in box below)
x = ,1 = , 6 =.
= 90, what can you conclude about the other angles that are formed
by the parallel lines and the transversal?
Define skew lines.
Give a real life example
of skew lines and parallel lines below.
