### parallel lines

Two lines that are in the same plane but do not intersect

### skew lines

Two lines that are not in the same plane and do not intersect

### slope

The ratio of vertical change (rise) to horizontal change (run) between any two points on a nonvertical line

### transversal

A line that intersects two or more coplanar lines at different points

### slope-intercept form

The general form of a linear equation: y=mx+b

### standard form

Ax + By=C where A and B are not both zero

### corresponding angles

Two angles that are in the SAME CORNER or CORRESPONDING positions. (Shown above with angles 4 and 5 and again with angles 3 and 6.)

### alternate interior angles

Two angles that lie BETWEEN the two lines and on OPPOSITE SIDES of the transversal. (Shown above with angles 4 and 5 and again with angles 3 and 6.)

### consecutive interior angles

Two angles that lie BETWEEN the two lines and on the SAME SIDE of the transversal. (Shown above as angles 4 and 6 and again with angles 3 and 5)

### alternate exterior angles

Two angles that lie OUTSIDE of the two lines and on OPPOSITE SIDES of the transversal. (Shown above as angles 2 and 7 and again with angles 1 and 8.)
