# Drawing Lines, Segments, and Rays Worksheets

What Are Lines, Segments, and Rays? As the students begin learning geometry, the first concepts they will learn will be about lines and their possible types. It is crucial that students polish these concepts before moving on to advanced geometrical concepts. These concepts will be reinforced continually in advanced mathematics and geometry. Therefore, mastering them is of great help to the students. A line segment is often referred to as the portion of a line or a ray. It has a definite starting point and an ending point. In other terms, a line segment is a line bounded by two endpoints. We can define or label the line segment by using letters for both the endpoints. We mention this letter above or slightly below the endpoint. A line segment is called by its defined endpoints. For example, a line segment AB would look like this: A ray is a line that starts at one point but continues infinitely in one direction. If we label a ray at starting point A, we will place B to tell us in which direction the ray would proceed. We will draw a line with labels A and, but we would continue the line beyond point B. Unlike segments and rays, lines do not have any defined endpoints. It neither begins at point nor ends at any point. It continues infinitely in both directions.

• ### Basic Lesson

Guides students through draw lines and line segments. A Line has no beginning point or end point. Imagine it continuing indefinitely to both directions. Line AB is illustrated by little arrows on both ends.

• ### Intermediate Lesson

Demonstrates how to draw line segments and rays. A ray has a beginning but no end point.

• ### Independent Practice 1

A really great activity for allowing students to understand the concepts of lines, segments, and rays. Draw the lines, line segments, and rays indicated.

• ### Independent Practice 2

Students determine the Draw lines, segments, and rays in 20 assorted problems. The answers can be found below.

• ### Homework Worksheet

Students are provided with 12 problems on drawing lines, segments, and rays.

• ### Skill Quiz

This tests the students ability to draw lines, segments, and rays.

Answers for the homework and quiz.

• ### Answer Key Part 2

Answers for lessons and both practice sheets.

#### When does CAB + BAT = CAT?

When CAB, BAT, and CAT are angles.

If angle CAB and angle BAT are adjacent, with A as the vertex, then the outer rays will form angle CAT.
