 # Parallel and perpendicular lines: 6th grade math course in PDF.

Course on parallel and perpendicular lines in 6th grade to download or print for free in PDF with definition of a point, a line, a half-line. The alignment and distance between two points as well as the midpoint of a segment and the perpendicular lines and the perpendicular bisector of a segment. We will end this lesson with parallel lines and properties.
The student should be able to construct using geometry equipment and master the various mathematical notations on lines. The 3 essential properties must be known in order to be able to carry out demonstrations in class of sixth.

## I. Point, segment, line and half line

### 1. vocabulary, representations and notations ### 2. Alignment and belonging

Definition:

Aligned points are points that belong to the same line.

Example:

In the figure below, points A, B and M are aligned.

• The point M belongs to the line (AB). We note .
• The point N does not belong to the line (AB). . ### 3. Distance between two points

Definition:

The distance between two points is the length of the shortest path between these two points. This is the length of the segment that joins these two points.

Example:

The distance between points A and B is 2.5 cm.

We note: AB = 2.5 cm. ### 4. Middle of a segment

Definition:

The middle of a segment is the point on the segment that divides it into two segments of equal length.

Example:

The point M is the middle of the segment [AB].

Indeed: the points A, M and B are aligned and MA=MB. ## II. Perpendicular lines

### 1. secant lines

Definition:

Two intersecting lines are two lines that have only one point in common.

Example:

The lines (d) and (d’) are secant at A. ### 2. Perpendicular lines

Definition:

Two perpendicular lines are two intersecting lines that form four right angles.

Example and notation:

The ruler and the square are used to draw two perpendicular lines.

The lines (d) and (d’) below are perpendicular at A.

We note . ### 3. Distance from a point to a line

Definition:

The distance from a point to a line is the length of the shortest path between that point and the line.

Ownership:

The distance from a point A to a line (d) is the distance (AH) between A and H, the foot of the perpendicular led from A to the line (d). ### 4. The perpendicular bisector of a segment

Definition:

The perpendicular bisector of a segment is the line that is perpendicular to the segment at its center.

Example:

The line (d) is the perpendicular bisector of the segment [AB].

Indeed:

• The line (d) is perpendicularto the line (AB);
• The line (d) cuts the segment [AB] in its middle. ## III. Parallel lines

### 1. parallel lines

Definition:

Two parallel lines are two lines that do not intersect.

Example and notation:

The lines (d) and (d’) are parallel.

We note (d)//(d’). Remark:

When points A, B and C are aligned, the lines (AB) and (AC) are said tocoincide. ### 2.distance between two parallel lines

Definition:

The distance between two parallel lines is the length of the shortest path between these two lines.

Ownership:

The distance between two parallel lines (d) and (d’) is the length of a segment [AB]perpendicular to these two lines with A a point of (d) and B a point of (d’). ### 3. two properties

Ownership:

If two lines are perpendicular to a third, then they are parallel. Ownership:

If two lines are parallel, and a third line is perpendicular to one, then it is also perpendicular to the other. ## Did you learn about parallel and perpendicular lines in 6th grade?
