Parallel Lines and Trnsversals

Parallel Lines and Transversals

When it comes to teaching your students about Parallel Lines and Transversals its all about the visuals! Here are our Top 3 Favorite YouTube videos to assist in teaching this very lengthy lesson.

1.) Start with the Basics

Before you can ever go into the details of the types of angles created by parallel lines and transversals you must make sure they have a clear understanding of the differences between the two. This is a very cheesy video that will ensure they never forget the difference between these two vocabulary words.

2.) Real World Uses

Very short video clip with a couple of real world uses of parallel lines and transversals. You'll want to bookmark the site they have many useful resources for teachers.

3.) Finally the meat of the more advanced topics

Khann Academy video series that goes into the different types of angles formed by parallel lines and transversals. This is an excellent teaching resource.

Here are your free materials and worksheets from some of our sections on Quadrilaterals! 

Common Core Standards

Prove theorems about parallelograms. Theorems include: opposite sides are congruent, opposite angles are congruent, the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other, and conversely, rectangles are parallelograms with congruent diagonals.

Make formal geometric constructions with a variety of tools and methods (compass and straightedge, string, reflective devices, paper folding, dynamic geometric software, etc.).Copying a segment; copying an angle; bisecting a segment; bisecting an angle; constructing perpendicular lines, including the perpendicular bisector of a line segment; and constructing a line parallel to a given line through a point not on the line.
