Parallel Lines Properties of Angles Formed by Parallel Lines and a Transversal

Parallel lines (Definition) A line that intersects both parallel lines is called a transversal. Which is the transversal in the diagram above?

Parallel lines §

Corresponding Angles

Alternate Angles (they alternate…) Alternate Interior: inside the parallel lines, on either side of the transversal Alternate Exterior: outside the parallel lines, on either side of the transversal

Same Side Interior These angles are on the same side of the transversal and inside the parallel lines.

Investigation 1) 2) 3) 4) Use the ruler to draw a pair of parallel lines, intersected by a transversal. Label the angles. Place a piece of patty paper over angles 1, 2, 3 and 4. Copy them onto the patty paper. Slide the patty paper down to compare angles 1 -4 with angles 5 -8 Measure angle 1. Use this measure to calculate the measure of the other 7 angles.

Theorems If two parallel lines are intersected by a transversal then: Corresponding Angles are equal Alternate Interior Angles are equal Alternate Exterior Angles are equal Same Side Interior Angles are supplementary
