1 Lesson Plan #31 Class: Geometry Date: Friday November 8th, 2013 Topic: Properties of parallel lines (continued) Aim: How do we use the properties of parallel lines? Objectives: Students will be able to use the properties of parallel lines. HW #31: Page 81 #’s 1-10 Recall the previously stated postulate “Through a given point not on a given line, there exists one and only one line parallel to the given line.” Do Now: Note: R B 1) Construct a line through point R that is parallel to AB A 2) 3) PROCEDURE: Write the Aim and Do Now Get students working!

This would lead to congruent alternate interior angles, meaning this new line is parallel to line n. But we already had one line (m) parallel to the given line (n) through a point not on the line. 2 1 4 m 3 5 6 7 8 But this contradicts our previously stated postulate which states through a point not on a given line, there is one and only one line parallel to the given line. Theorem: If two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, then the alternate interior angles formed are congruent. Theorems that are converses of other previously stated theorems (presented without proof) If two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, then the corresponding angles are congruent If two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, then the two interior angles on the same side of the transversal are supplementary If a line is perpendicular to one of two parallel lines, it is perpendicular to the other.
