- Discuss the steps necessary to carry out each activity. Describe briefly what each line looks like in relation to the original given line.
- Answer these two questions briefly in your own words:
- What does it mean for one line to be parallel to another?
- What does it mean for one line to be perpendicular to another?
- Incorporate the following five math vocabulary words into your discussion. Use bold font to emphasize the words in your writing (Do not write definitions for the words; use them appropriately in sentences describing your math work.):
- Ordered pair
- X- or y-intercept
