The corresponding angles postulate states that when a transversal intersects parallel lines, the corresponding angles are congruent. What if you go the other way and start with corresponding angles that are congruent? Is the converse of this postulate true? This tutorial explores exactly that!
A conditional statement is an if-then statement. For every conditional statement you can write three related statements, the converse, the inverse, and the contrapositive. The video shows how these are related.
If two figures have the same size and shape, then they are congruent. The term congruent is often used to describe figures like this. In this tutorial, take a look at the term congruent!
Lines that are parallel have a very special quality. Without this quality, these lines are not parallel. In this tutorial, take a look at parallel lines and see how they are different from any other kind of lines!
When a transversal intersects parallel lines, the corresponding angles created have a special relationship. The corresponding angles postulate looks at that relationship! Follow along with this tutorial to learn about this postulate.
Got a transversal intersecting two lines? Trying to figure out if those lines are parallel? You could test to see if corresponding angles are congruent. This tutorial shows you how!
