  • Chapter 3 Perpendicular and Parallel LinesThe Bigger Picture-Properties of Perpendicular and Parallel LinesHow to Write a Flow Proof Valuable Logic for Project Related PlanningFoundational Skills for solving problems with triangles, and practical applications such as carpentry, engineering, & physics

    Identify relationships between Lines

    Identify angles formed by coplanar lines intersected by a transversalLaying the foundation for work with angles and their proofsProve and use results about perpendicular linesUseful application for real-life situations such as carpentry and construction related analysisWrite Flow ProofsLearn the basics of flow diagrams in support of proofs. Valuable real-life tool used for project planning in virtually every industryProve and use results about parallel lines and transversals- Understand the world around you with regard to intersecting lines and the angles they formThe What and the WhyProve that Lines are Parallel

    Use properties of parallel lines- Scientific applications such as paths of light, reflection, and refractionUse Slope in a coordinate plane to determine if lines are parallel- Introduction to the concepts of coordinate geometryWrite an equation of a line parallel to a given line in a coordinate plane- Foundation for writing coordinate proofsUse Slope to decide if lines in a coordinate plane are perpendicularSolving real life problems regarding the determining of right angle formationsWrite an equation of a line perpendicular to a given line.

  • Perpendicular and Parallel LinesSailboats are actually designed to sail against the wind. Most sailboats can sail at an angle of 45* to the direction from which the wind is blowing. If a sailboat heads directly into the wind, the sail simply flaps and becomes useless.

    In the drawing to the right, what do you think the measure of angle 1 is based on the path in which both boats are traveling?

    If the boats always sail at a 45* angle to the wind, and the wind doesnt change direction, do you think the boats paths will ever cross?
