  • Pause the video after each rule to ask and answer clarifying questions
Classroom Considerations
  • Learners should be familiar with tangent and secant lines
  • The 19th installment in a series of 40 video lessons
  • This resource is only available on an unencrypted HTTP website. It should be fine for general use, but don’t use it to share any personally identifiable information
  • Connects the segment and angle rules of secant and tangent lines to the formation of similar triangles
  • Explanation of the tangent/secant rules at the beginning is difficult to follow
