Standards SPI’s taught in Unit 3:
SPI Give precise mathematical descriptions or definitions of geometric shapes in the plane and space. SPI Use definitions, basic postulates, and theorems about points, lines, angles, and planes to write/complete proofs and/or to solve problems. SPI Analyze, apply, or interpret the relationships between basic number concepts and geometry (e.g. rounding and pattern identification in measurement, the relationship of pi to other rational and irrational numbers) SPI Define, identify, describe, and/or model plane figures using appropriate mathematical symbols (including collinear and non-collinear points, lines, segments, rays, angles, triangles, quadrilaterals, and other polygons). CLE (Course Level Expectations) found in Unit 3: CLE Use analytic geometry tools to explore geometric problems involving parallel and perpendicular lines, circles, and special points of polygons. CLE Develop the structures of geometry, such as lines, angles, planes, and planar figures, and explore their properties and relationships. CFU (Checks for Understanding) applied to Unit 3: Apply properties and theorems about angles associated with parallel and perpendicular lines to solve problems. Use properties of and theorems about parallel lines, perpendicular lines, and angles to prove basic theorems in Euclidean geometry (e.g., two lines parallel to a third line are parallel to each other, the perpendicular bisectors of line segments are the set of all points equidistant from the endpoints, and two lines are parallel when the alternate interior angles they make with a transversal are congruent).

Transversal A transversal is a line which cuts across two or more coplanar lines –they may or may not be parallel Transversals create special angle pairs which have properties that we can use to solve their measure of degree Transversal Parallel Lines are indicated by arrows

Corresponding Angles Corresponding Angles: These are angles which occupy corresponding (or matching) positions on two different lines- Angle 1 corresponds with Angle 5 Which angle corresponds with angle 4? Which angle corresponds with angle 2? 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

Corresponding Angles on Parallel Lines
Corresponding Angles Postulate If a transversal intersects 2 parallel lines, then corresponding angles are congruent If the measure of angle 3 is 75 degrees, what is the measure of angle 2? (Vertical Angles) What is the measure of Angle 7? (Corresponding Angles) What is the measure of Angle 6? What is the measure of Angle 4 (Supplementary Angles)? What is the measure of Angle 8 (corresponding angles)? 1 2 3 4 6 7 8 5

6
Alternate Interior Angles
These angles lie between the two lines, on opposite sides of the transversal Alternate Interior Angles Theorem If a transversal intersects 2 parallel lines, then alternate interior angles are congruent Here, angle 3 and angle 6 are Alternate angles. What is the alternate interior angle that matches up with angle 5? If angle 5 is 130 degrees, what is the measure of angle 4? What is the measure of Angle 6? What is the measure of Angle 3? 1 2 3 4 6 7 8 5

7
Consecutive Interior Angles, or Same Side Interior Angles
If two angles lie between the two lines on the same side of the transversal they are consecutive interior angles, or same-side interior angles Same-Side Interior Angles Theorem If a transversal intersects 2 parallel lines, then same-side interior angles are supplementary Angle 3 and Angle 5 are Same Side Interior Angles If angle 5 is 120 degrees, what is the measure of angle 3? What is the measure of angle 4? What is the measure of angle 6? 1 2 3 4 6 7 8 5

8
Alternate Exterior Angles
If two angles lie outside the two lines, on opposite sides of the transversal, then they are Alternate Exterior Angles Alternate Exterior Angles Theorem If a transversal intersects 2 parallel lines, then Alternate Exterior Angles are congruent Angle 1 and Angle 8 are alternate exterior angles What is the alternate exterior angle for angle 7? If angle 8 measures 140 degrees, what is the measure of angle 1? 1 2 3 4 6 7 8 5

Perpendicular Transversals
If a transversal is perpendicular to one of two parallel lines, it is perpendicular to the other parallel line Here, we are given enough information to conclude that line c is perpendicular to line a, because it forms a right (90 degree) angle Because line a is parallel to line b, we can conclude that line c is also perpendicular to line b a b c

11
Example Find the value of X These are like puzzles:
Here, we see that angle 4 is vertical with an angle that is 125 degrees. Therefore, angle 4 is 125 degrees We see that angle 4, and the angle (x+15) are same-side interior angles We know that Same-Side interior angles are supplementary (they add up to 180 degrees) Therefore X + 15 = 180 Or: X = 180 Or: X = 40 125 2 3 4 X+ 15 7 8 5
