Study Notes

  • Lines that are in the same direction and will never cross are called 'parallel lines'.
  • When lines cross at a point, it's called an 'intersection', and angles are formed.
  • Angles can be named using the points that form them, and arcs can represent angles between intersecting lines.
  • Perpendicular lines form right angles, which are indicated by a special square symbol.
  • An acute angle is smaller than a right angle, while an obtuse angle is larger.
  • A straight angle is formed by two rays pointing in opposite directions, creating a straight line.
  • Complementary angles combine to form a right angle, while supplementary angles combine to form a straight angle.

Test your knowledge on fundamental concepts in geometry such as parallel lines, intersections, angles, and angle measurements. Learn about perpendicular lines, acute angles, obtuse angles, and more.
