What are parallel and perpendicualr lines?

Use the following link for the clip and activities on BBC bitesize:


Once you have looked at the clip I would like you to apply what you have learnt by describing what you can see on flags of the world. I have added a flags PowerPoint for you to use if you wish. Ask yourself the following questions:


  • What shapes can I see?
  • Are there any pairs of parallel lines?
  • Are there any lines perpendicular to one another?
  • What angles can I see?


Always make sure you are talking like a mathematician and using the correct vocabulary - even if you are talking to yourself!!!
