3.11 - Points, Lines, Line Segments, Rays and Angles
The student will
- identify and draw representations of points, lines, line segments, rays, and angles.
- So that I can identify the parts, or components, of plane polygons
- So that I can describe and compare real-world objects that are around me
UNDERSTANDING THE STANDARD
- A point is an exact location in space. It has no length, width, or height.
- A line is a collection of points extending indefinitely in both directions. It has no endpoints.
- A line segment is part of a line. It has two endpoints and includes all the points between and including those endpoints.
- A ray is part of a line. It has one endpoint and extends indefinitely in one direction.
- An angle is formed by two rays that share a common endpoint called the vertex. Angles are found wherever lines or line segments intersect.
- Geometric notation to name lines, line segments and rays is included in grade four.
The student will use problem solving, mathematical communication, mathematical reasoning, connections, and representations to
- Identify examples of points, line segments, rays, angles, and lines.
- Describe endpoints and vertices as they relate to lines, line segments, rays, and angles.
- Draw representations of points, line segments, rays, angles, and lines, using a ruler or straightedge.
