### Transcript

• 1. Segment & Angle Bisectors Objectives: - Bisect a segment - Bisect an angle
• 2. Bisecting a Segment
• The midpoint of a segment is the point that divides, or bisects , the segment into two congruent segments.
• In your book, red congruence marks identify congruent segments in diagrams
• M is the midpoint of AB if M is on AB and AM=MB
A B M
• 3. Bisecting a Segment
• A segment bisector is a segment, ray, line, or plane that intersects a segment at its midpoint.
• Line CD is a bisector of segment AB
A B M D C
• 4. Construction
• You can use a compass and a straightedge to construct a segment bisector and midpoint of a segment. A construction is a geometric drawing that uses a limited set of tools, usually a compass and a straightedge.
• 5. Construct a bisector.
• 6. Midpoint Formula
• If you know the coordinates of the endpoints of a segment, you can calculate the coordinates of the midpoint by taking the average of the x coordinates and y coordinates.
• 7.
• What is M?
2, 0 8, 0 M

• What is M?
1, 7 3, 7 M
• 9. Look at the formula
• At the top of page 35
• Then do Examples 1&2 together
• 10. Bisecting an Angle
• An angle bisector is a ray that divides an angle into two adjacent angles that are congruent.
• Ray FH Bisects Angle GFI because it divides the angle into two congruent angles.
• In the book, matching congruence arcs identify congruent angles in diagrams.
