Finally, we're getting to geometry. We've been waiting for this and hope you have been, too. The foundation of all geometry is the line--so that's a great place to start. From there we'll move into angles, quadrilaterals, and triangles. Our goal here is to get familiar with the basic concepts, skills, and applications of geometry. So jump in and let's go for a ride!
Lines, line segments, and rays
Let's draw points, lines, line segments, and rays. We'll also think about perpendicular and parallel lines and identify these in two-dimensional figures. Common Core Standard: 4.G.A.1
What is an angle and how do we label, measure and construct them? Great question. Luckily we have all your answers! To begin our journey towards understanding angles, we'll learn terms like vertex, acute, obtuse, circle arc, circumference, and protractor. These basic angle concepts will get you on the road to angle domination!
A line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure is a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. In this tutorial, we'll identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry. Common Core Standard: 4.G.A.3
