Slopes of Perpendicular Lines with TI-Nspire
Tenth graders investigate slopes and perpendicular lines using the TI. In this geometry lesson, 10th graders graph perpendicular line on the Ti and adjust to explore the slope. This assignment can also be done on graph paper.

Looking More Carefully at Parallel Lines
Can you prove it? Making assumptions in geometry is commonplace. This resource requires mathematicians to prove the parallel line postulate through constructions. Learners construct parallel lines with a 180-degree rotation and then...

Finding the Slope of a Line from a Graph - Concept
Explain how to find the slope of a graph of a line with a video that points out how no matter what two points are used on a graph of a line, the slope is the same. A few examples reiterate how to find the slope of vertical and horizontal...
