Measurements

Inches, centimeters, feet, meters, etc.
• Just use a ruler. Measurements are arbitrary because the units of measurements are arbitrary.
• If a coordinate system is used on a line, then ALGEBRA comes into play.
Tolerance
• Measurements are never exact.
• They are always open to interpretation.
• Answers are sometimes rounded up.
• Answers are sometimes rounded down.
• Some visual interpretations are different. There may be a scale.
• The degree of accuracy depends on the accuracy of the equipment.
• The degree of accuracy depends on the accuracy of measurer.

### Coordinate Systems

Points are letters

Coordinate are numbers.

Counting blocks would be time consuming.

You could simply subtract.

Subtraction means the difference between numbers.

You could simply subtract.

33 – (-8) =

Note that negative numbers requires using algebra.

You could simply subtract.

-5 – (-8) =

-5 + 8 =

However if we subtract the numbers in reverse, then...

-8 – (-5) =

-8 + 5 =

- 3

Therefore to avoid negative numbers,

we take the absolute value of the differences.

You subtract the coordinates

then take the absolute value

of the difference.

Ruler Postulate
• The points on a line can be paired up with real numbers in such a way that any two points can have coordinates of 0 or 1.
• Once the coordinates have been chosen in this way, the distance between the any two points is the absolute value of the difference of their coordinates.

The measuring scale is arbitrary.

M is a midpoint of

IfM is on the segment and

It is necessary for both conditions. Let’s see why?

D, E, and F

Are equidistant from both A and B

But they are NOT midpoints.

The midpoint

Must be on the

Segment!

Bisectors

Bisectors can be any segment, ray, line, or plane if they go thru the midpoint of a segment.

D is midpoint of

E is midpoint of

C is midpoint of

B is midpoint of

Find the value of their coordinates.

Summary

There are several symbols for geometric terms.

A

B

C

D

F

E

No symbol means…

The distance from B to C.

A numerical value.

B

C

Summary 2

There are alternate symbols for

distance, length, or measurement.

A

B

Measurements are always arbitrary due to

the choice of units (meters, feet, etc.),

degree of accuracy and

scale.

Summary 3

The letters are the names of the points.

The numbers are the coordinates that indicate

the relative position of each point.

Summary 4

The ruler postulate allows us to…

1. Build number lines at any scale.

2. Compute distance by taking

the absolute value of the

difference of the coordinates.

Summary 5

allows us to conclude…

The distance on a line is

the sum of its parts.
