Geometry

# Points and Lines

In this concept, the students will learn about class 2 points and lines. They will learn about the types of lines. Also, they will learn about slant lines and curved lines.

In this learning concept, the students will learn:

• What is horizontal line?
• What is straight line?
• What is vertical line?

Each concept is explained to class 2 maths students using illustrations, examples, and mind maps. You can assess your learning by solving the two printable worksheets at the pagesâ€™ end.

## Lines:

In simple language, it can be said that a line is a long and thin mark. It can be seen easily as the length of a table, the length of pipes or trees, loose skipping ropes, etc.

There are two types of lines that can be seen in our surroundings.

• Straight Lines
• Curved Lines

## What is straight Line?

A straight line is just a line with no curves. Fold a paper sheet in half. If we run a pencil along the fold from the top to the bottom, then we get a straight line.

A straight line can be drawn in three ways.

• Horizontal lines (also called Sleeping lines)
• Vertical lines (also called Standing lines)
• Slant lines

## What is horizontal Lines or Sleeping Lines:

These lines can be seen from the edge of a diary, brick, eraser, etc.

## What is vertical Lines or Standing Lines:

These lines can be formed from the edges of the stems of trees, wickets, buildings, etc.

## Slant Line:

These lines can be seen in the staircase, roof of huts, etc.

## Curved Lines

A line with the curve is called a curved line. These lines can be seen easily in ropes, skipping rope, rope bridges, arch of windows, etc.

## Point

A point is a dot or a full stop. In real life, we can see that four leaves meet at one dot. This dot is said to be a point. A Point can be easily seen in road junctions also.
