Tool: Transversal Lines - Math Open Reference
Tool Thumbnail

Go to: (opens a new window)

An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the transversal, a line that crosses two other (usually parallel) lines. The applet shows two lines that are initially parallel, and a transversal line. All eight angles thus formed are shown. As you drag the transversal end points, you can see that the angles form congruent, supplementary and complementary sets. If you move one of the parallel lines to make it non-parallel, you can see that these angles lose some of their relationship with each other.

Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. After use in the classroom, student can access it again from any web browser at home or in the library with no login required.
