2 Lines Lines have arrows on each end. Lines do not end; they go on and on forever in both directions.
3 Line Segments Line segments may also be called segments. Line segments are part of a line.Line segments do not have arrows.
4 Rays Rays begin with a point at one end. Rays go on and on forever in only one direction.Rays have an arrow on one end.
5 Horizontal Lines, segments, and rays may be drawn horizontally. Horizontal means level with the horizon.The horizon is the line in the distance where the land and the sky meet.Horizontal LineHorizontal SegmentHorizontal Rays
6 Vertical Lines, segments, and rays may be drawn vertically. Vertical SegmentLines, segments, and rays may be drawn vertically.Vertical means straight up and down.Vertical Rays
7 Oblique Lines, segments, and rays may be oblique. Oblique SegmentLines, segments, and rays may be oblique.Oblique means slanted.Oblique Rays
8 Parallel Lines, segments, and rays may be parallel. Parallel, Oblique LinesLines, segments, and rays may be parallel.Parallel lines go in the same direction and will never cross over each other.Parallel lines can be horizontal, vertical or oblique.Parallel, Horizontal SegmentsParallel, Vertical Rays
9 Intersecting Lines, segments, and rays may cross over each other. We call this intersecting.Intersecting SegmentsIntersecting Rays
10 Perpendicular Lines, segments, and rays may be perpendicular. When lines intersect and form square corners, we call them perpendicular.Perpendicular SegmentsPerpendicular Rays
11 Angles Angles form when lines, segments, or rays intersect. There are 3 types of angles:AcuteRightObtuse
12 Right AnglesRight angles are 90They form square corners.
13 Acute AnglesAcute angles are less than 90“A cute” little angle.
