Background Tutorials

Know precise definitions of angle, circle, perpendicular line, parallel line, and line segment, based on the undefined notions of point, line, distance along a line, and distance around a circular arc.

A math term can really tell you a lot about the thing it's describing. Take the term line segment. A line segment is just part of a line! In this tutorial, learn about line segments, how to name them, and what the midpoint of a line segment is!

Lines that are parallel have a very special quality. Without this quality, these lines are not parallel. In this tutorial, take a look at parallel lines and see how they are different from any other kind of lines!

Prove the slope criteria for parallel and perpendicular lines and use them to solve geometric problems (e.g., find the equation of a line parallel or perpendicular to a given line that passes through a given point).

Parallel lines are lines that will go on and on forever without ever intersecting. This is because they have the same slope! If you have two linear equations that have the same slope but different y-intercepts, then those lines are parallel to one another!
