Lines In Mathematics, a straight line is defined as having infinite length and no width. Is this possible in real life? 3 of 69 © Boardworks Ltd 2004

Labelling line segments When a line has end points we say that it has finite length. It is called a line segment. We usually label the end points with capital letters. For example, this line segment A B has end points A and B. We can call this line, line segment AB. 4 of 69 © Boardworks Ltd 2004

Labelling angles When two lines meet at a point an angle is formed. A B C An angle is a measure of the rotation of one of the line segments to the other. We label angles using capital letters. This angle can be described as 5 of 69 ABC or B. © Boardworks Ltd 2004

Conventions, definitions and derived properties A convention is an agreed way of describing a situation. For example, we use dashes on lines to show that they are the same length. A definition is a minimum set of conditions needed to describe something. 60° For example, an equilateral triangle has three equal sides and three equal angles. A derived property follows from a definition. 60° For example, the angles in an equilateral triangle are each 60°. 6 of 69 © Boardworks Ltd 2004

Lines in a plane What can you say about these pairs of lines? These lines cross, or intersect. 9 of 69 These lines do not intersect. They are parallel. © Boardworks Ltd 2004

Lines in a plane A flat two-dimensional surface is called a plane. Any two straight lines in a plane either intersect once … This is called the point of intersection. 10 of 69 © Boardworks Ltd 2004

Lines in a plane … or they are parallel. We use arrow heads to show that lines are parallel. Parallel lines will never meet. They stay an equal distance apart. This means that they are always equidistant. Where do you see parallel lines in everyday life? 11 of 69 © Boardworks Ltd 2004

Perpendicular lines What is special about the angles at the point of intersection here? a d b c a=b=c=d Each angle is 90. We show this with a small square in each corner. Lines that intersect at right angles are called perpendicular lines. 12 of 69 © Boardworks Ltd 2004

Drawing perpendicular lines with a set square We can draw perpendicular lines using a ruler and a set square. Draw a straight line using a ruler. Place the set square on the ruler and use the right angle to draw a line perpendicular to this line. 15 of 69 © Boardworks Ltd 2004

Drawing parallel lines with a set square We can also draw parallel lines using a ruler and a set square. Place the set square on the ruler and use it to draw a straight line perpendicular to the ruler’s edge. Slide the set square along the ruler to draw a line parallel to the first. 16 of 69 © Boardworks Ltd 2004
