Problem 1 – Slopes of lines

Open a new Cabri Jr. file for each part (\begin{align*}A\end{align*}A, \begin{align*}B\end{align*}B, and \begin{align*}C\end{align*}C).

A. Construct a line and a point not on the line. Construct a second line through the point that is parallel to the first line. Find the slopes of both lines.

If two lines are parallel, then the slopes of the lines are ______________

Converse: ______________________________

Inverse: _______________________________

Contrapositive: _____________________________

Determine whether the above conditional statements are true or false. If you decide a statement is false, sketch a counterexample.

B. Construct a line and a point not on the line. Construct a second line through the point that is perpendicular to the first line. Find the slopes of both lines.

If two lines are perpendicular, then the slopes of the lines are ______________

Converse: ______________________________

Inverse: _______________________________

Contrapositive: _____________________________

Determine whether the above conditional statements are true or false. If you decide a statement is false, sketch a counterexample.

C. Construct two lines that have the same \begin{align*}y-\end{align*}yintercept.

If two different lines have the same \begin{align*}y-\end{align*}yintercept, then the lines have different slopes.

Converse: ______________________________

Inverse: ______________________________

Contrapositive: ______________________________

Determine whether the above conditional statements are true or false. If you decide a statement is false, sketch a counterexample.

Problem 2 – Collinear and noncollinear segments

A. Use the Cabri Jr. file COLSEG to complete the following.

Find the distances \begin{align*}AB\end{align*}AB, \begin{align*}BC\end{align*}BC, and \begin{align*}AC\end{align*}AC. Drag the points to create different lengths.

\begin{align*}& AB \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;} && BC \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;} && AC \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;} && AB + BC \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;}\\ & AB \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;} && BC \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;} && AC \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;} && AB + BC \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;}\\ & AB \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;} && BC \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;} && AC \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;} && AB + BC \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;}\end{align*}AB AB AB BC BC BC AC AC AC AB+BC AB+BC AB+BC 

When do the lengths \begin{align*}AB\end{align*}AB and \begin{align*}BC\end{align*}BC add up to equal \begin{align*}AC\end{align*}AC? __________________

Write a conditional statement to express your conclusion:

If __________________ , then __________________

B. Use the Cabri Jr. file NOCOLSEG to complete the following.

Now explore what happens if \begin{align*}AB\end{align*}AB, \begin{align*}BC\end{align*}BC, and \begin{align*}AC\end{align*}AC are not collinear.

\begin{align*}& AB \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;} && BC \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;} && AC \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;} && AB + BC \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;}\\ & AB \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;} && BC \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;} && AC \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;} && AB + BC \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;}\\ & AB \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;} && BC \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;} && AC \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;} && AB + BC \ \underline{\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;}\end{align*}AB AB AB BC BC BC AC AC AC AB+BC AB+BC AB+BC 

What is the relationship between \begin{align*}AB + BC\end{align*}AB+BC and \begin{align*}AC\end{align*}AC? _________________

Write a conditional statement to express your conclusion:

If __________________ , then __________________
