The Grade 7/8 Assignment: Grade 7 textbook, working on assignment 8.1 and 8.2.  On 8.1 they are to complete #’s

19.04.12 grade 7 – parallel and perpendicular lines – 8.1-8.2-18jxzej

Below is the original lesson for this using pencil, paper, and geometry tools (feel free if you have those to do this the original way.  If you don’t have a geometry set I have made another video (below) that shows how to use this handy online tool to complete your assignment.  Note: I have not tested this on an iphone etc.  I anticipate it may not work on them.  However, a quick search on the app story reveals MANY options for apps you can use to do this, then take screen shots for you to use.  Or, you could try installing a browser that uses flash such as flashfox and then the link below should work for you even on an apple device.

Here is the link for a great hands on tool to do geometry on a pc or device.  It is the website I used to make the video lesson below.
