Lines, Rays, Line Segments, and Planes
Students are introduced to lines, rays, line segments and planes. They explore the differences between lines, rays, line segments and planes. Students pracice graphing lines, rays, line segments and planes.
Use dance to help learners conceptualize line segments, rays, lines, and planes. They choreograph dances that show dimensional space. Dancers start by pondering space, point, and lines as the teacher draws them in the air. Each movement they make is described in mathematical terminology as it relates to points, segments, rays, planes, and lines. This is a great way to make an abstract concept kinesthetic and tangible for differentiaed learning.
Interactivate - Lines, Rays, Line Segments, and Planes
Students explore lines, rays, line segments, and planes. In this math lesson, students discuss the math concepts and direct their instructor in graphing functions. Students collaborate in graphing additional functions.
Elementary schoolers explore angles, rays, line segments, and more in a fine geometry lesson. The book, Shape Up! Fun with Triangles and Other Polygons, is used extensively. The plan has lots of hands-on activities and terrific teaching ideas to explore geometric shapes, number of sides, parallel lines, perpendicular lines, and angles. There are also some terrific worksheets and detailed instructions for the activities, which should make implementation of this plan easy.
Basic Geometry ... A Pathway to Angles
Help 9th graders identify lines, points, rays, and planes in geometry. They practice identifying, measuring, and drawing angles of different degrees. This is a fundamental lesson to help students learn the building blocks of geometry.
Angles and Lines
Fifth graders examine geometric figures. In this geometry instructional activity, 5th graders examine figures and define perpendicular, parallel, skew line pairs, segments, rays, and angles. Students categorize 2- and 3-dimensional objects.
Line, Ray and Line Segment
In this line worksheet, students sketch 6 lines, line segments, and rays. Students sketch examples of a line, line segment, and ray.
Construct and Measure Lines, Segments, Rays, and Angles Using Geometer's Sketchpad
Sixth graders construct points, lines, rays, line segments and angles using Geometer's Sketchpad, label all points and measure each constructed item, print their constructions, and complete question sheet to demonstrate understanding.
Star Wars: Rays and Angles Edition
Rays and angles and Star Wars? It sounds strange, but it's actually a fun game to help fourth graders get good at measuring and identifying angles and rays with a protractor. Each pair of children chooses which Star Wars character they'd like to be, then they each choose a card from their deck, they measure the angle on the card with a protractor and identify the angle. The child with the largest angle wins both cards. The child with all of the cards at the end of the game wins. Tip: This game could take some time to play, set a timer and state that the child with the most cards when the bell rings wins the game.
Constructing Congruent Line Segments and Angles, Perpendicular Bisectors of Line Segments, and Bisecting Angles.
Students identify perpendicular bisectors and angles. In this geometry lesson, students, construct and identify angles. They construct, measure, and identify line segments.
Twenty Fill in the Blank with Line, Ray or Line Segment
In this line, ray, and line segment worksheet, students fill in the twenty blanks with the appropriate terms. The solutions are provided.
Line, Ray, and Line Segment
In this line, ray, or line segment worksheet, students identify 9 diagrams as either a line, ray, or line segment.
Lines, Angles and Points Review
For this lines, angles and points review set of worksheets, 10th graders solve and complete 102 various types of multiple choice problems. First, they use the given figures to name an example of collinear points. Then, students refer to various coordinate planes to determine a set of ordered pairs. They also use a protractor to measure each given angle and identify whether it is acute, obtuse, or right.
Points, Lines, Segments, and Rays Lesson 15-1
Some of the most important vocabulary in the study of geometry is presented here. In this PowerPoint, learners view the definitions for points, lines, segments, and rays. The definitions and graphics are clear, and kids are also coached on how to "say" the term ("line QS") and how to properly write it using geometric language. A short, but useful presentation.
Third graders explore the story telling ability of a line. They use rulers, color, and a variety of lines to show emotion and thought. Paul Klee says, "A line is a dot that went for a walk." Why not extend that idea and discuss rays, points, and line segments while engaging in this creative project? A line design worksheet, a pre-assessment, and two additional handouts are included.
Joseph Stella Art: Line Designs
Learners discover the focal point in pictures and create their own images using lines and space. In this art analysis lesson, students create a black dot on a white paper which becomes a focal point for the lines the student will paint on the image. Learners let their paintings dry and then display them for the rest of the class to view.
Lines, Line Segments, Rays, and Angles - Practice 15.1
Is it a line, line segment, ray, or angle? Identifying geometric figures is the focus. In addition to identification, learners recognize right angles or tell if an angle is less than or greater than a right angle. They tell if lines are parallel, intersecting, or perpendicular, and solve word problems. This is a well-rounded assignment on straight lines!
Points, Lines, Planes, and Space
In this points, lines, planes, and space worksheet, students solve word problems dealing with points, lines, planes, and space. Students complete 20 individual problems and 20 group problems.
1.2 Points, Lines and Planes
This is a lengthy overview PowerPoint that defines, explains, shows examples, and has practice problems about points, lines and planes. The class will need to write many notes and there is an example of how to set up in the Cornell style of notetaking.
Lines and Angles with K'NEX
Here is a geometry instructional activitywhich invites learners to create models using their knowledge of lines, segments, rays, and angles. This instructional activity reinforces geometric vocabulary and concepts through practical application, it also includes extensions, list of terms, and an assessment.
