Background Tutorials

Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.

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!

Angles are a fundamental building block for creating all sorts of shapes! In this tutorial, learn about how an angle is formed, how to name an angle, and how an angle is measured. Take a look!

Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.

Rotating a figure about the origin can be a little tricky, but this tutorial can help! This tutorial shows you how to rotate coordinates from the original figure about the origin. Then, simply connect the points to create the new figure. See this process in action by watching this tutorial!
