Tonight's homework!

Is this...

Can you measure a line?  Why or why not?  

Give me your thoughts, ideas and even links to a website that helps explain your answer.  Leave your answer in the comments section below OR write your answer out on a sheet of paper if you are unable to leave a comment!

I hope that you had a lovely vacation and are ready to get into our new unit, Geometry!

  1. yes you can because a ruler measures lines.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Yes because a line is staight and a line has no angles or right angles

    ReplyDelete
  3. yes because you have to on a test with a ruler

    ReplyDelete
  4. Yes you can because if you use a ruler then you will be able to see how long or short the line is.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Yes you can because 1 you can measure a line with a ruler and 2 because you can measure a straight angle

    ReplyDelete
  6. These answers make sense, but I encourage you to look up the mathematical definition of a line. Your answers might be a bit different when you do that...

    Good luck!

  7. Yes because it's straight. Just take a ruler, line up the zero mark with the beginning of the line, and see which number the end of the line is on.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Yes you can measure a line because it is straight and you can measure one with a ruler. There have also been questions on test to measure a line segment.

    ReplyDelete
  9. A geometrical object that is straight, infinitely long and infinitely thin.

    ReplyDelete
  10. No because a line goes on forever so it is impossible to measure. But you can measure a line segment.

    You can measure different aspects of a line such as the slope. But you can not measure a lines distance unless it is a line segment. Plain lines go on and on forever.

  12. yes you can measure a line with a ruler because its straight.

    ReplyDelete
  13. yes u can because it straight just take a ruler and put it on the line

    ReplyDelete
  14. yes becuse you could use a ruler to see how a line is

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yes you can because a line is straight

    ReplyDelete
  16. A geometrical object that is straight and is infinitely long and infinitely thin.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yes because if you use a ruler then you will be able to see how long or short the line is.

    ReplyDelete
  18. no you can not measure a line because a line goes on forever and ever and has no point to measure to and from. However you can measure a line segment because it has two ends you can measure =D

    ReplyDelete
  19. so you would need a super extra long ruler that goes on like the line

    ReplyDelete
  20. yes, because a line is a straight geometric line and a ruler tells us how long, short, thin, or large it is =D

    ReplyDelete
  21. You can use a ruler to measure a small line but lines go on forever so it is possible but also inpossible. Also lines are straight so it is easy to measure small line with a ruler.

    ReplyDelete
  22. yes because if u use a ruler u will be able to see how long or short the line is

    ReplyDelete
  23. yes because if u use a ruler u will be able to measure how long or short it is. also because it is a straight line

    ReplyDelete
  24. Noooo! Because a line goes on forever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever so you would need a super super super long ruler!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yes, you can meausure a line because it is straight, and you can label it in many ways:cm,ft,meters,miles,yards...and so on. If it is a small line you would probaly measure with a ruler.

    ReplyDelete
  26. No! you cannot measure the Length of a line! A line is never ending!

    I found a link but it mentions line segments in it!

    http://math.about.com/od/geometry/ss/linessegments.htm

    ReplyDelete
  27. No because a line goes on forever.

    ReplyDelete
  28. You can't measure a line because a line keeps going on and on FOREVER!!!! However you can measure a line segment which has two end points that stop it from going on FOREVER and EVER.

    The definition of a line can be found at http://www.thefreedictionary.com/line

    ReplyDelete
  29. yes you can because the line is straight and not an angle of some sort.

  30. And ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and if I keep saying this then my head will fall off!!!!!!!!!!!! So I am going to stop saying it now.....

    ReplyDelete
  31. I think that you cannot measure a line because a line is exactly like a line segment but it goes on and on. A line never stops like a line segment.

    ReplyDelete
  32. You cannot measure a line because it goes on forever but u can measure a line segment because it has 2 endpoints!!!

  33. You can not measure a line because it goes forever. You can measure a line segment though.

    Help from my brother. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. You cannot measure a line because a line goes on forever. However, it os still possible to measure a line segment because it is just one line that stays the same.

    ReplyDelete
  35. hi miss k its eddie no you cannot measure a line because a line keeps on going on and on for ever i looked it up at google and answers.com but all of the answers said that you cant measure a line.

    ReplyDelete
  36. yes you can measure a line because if you take a ruler, the ruler is a strait line. a strait line has no angles so it is easy to measure a line.

    ReplyDelete
  37. but its may be that a line goes on forever and is impossible to measure

    A line goes on forever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. You can not measure a line because it can go on forever and ever however you can measure a segment of a line!:)

    ReplyDelete
  42. You can measure a line because you can use a ruler.

    ReplyDelete
  43. If a line has a beginning and an end (line segment) you can measure a line but other wise a line would go on and on

    ReplyDelete
  44. You could measure a line SEGMENT because a line segment has a certain length, but a line in-particular, would go on for a long long time, and you wouldn't be able to measure it. And that students is why you can not measure a line.

    ReplyDelete
  45. No. A line goes on for ever and Ever and EVer and EVEr and EVER!!! but you can measure a line segment....

    ReplyDelete
  46. I figured out how to put my profile picture miss.K so here it is.

  48. ugh i give up nvm, it wuz a nyan cat, ok a nyan cat that's it

    ReplyDelete
  49. no you cant measure a line. but you can measure a line segment but a line goes on and on for ever and ever and ever and ever.

    ReplyDelete
  50. No, because a line is never ending. But you could measure a line segment.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I can't measure a line because lines never end. What I can measure is a line segment because it ends a two certain points.

    ReplyDelete
  52. No Miss K. you cannot measure a line because it is never ever, ever, ever, ever ending, but you can measure a line segment because they don't go on forever and ever and ever and ever.

    ReplyDelete
  53. You can not measure a line because it keeps going on. But you can measure a line segment because it has two end points.

    ReplyDelete
  54. No you can not measure a line because a line goes on forever. You could measure if it ended with a dot but that would be called a line segment. So you cannot measure a line.

    ReplyDelete
  55. you can not me sure a line because it is an infinite length. But a line segment is only a piece of that infinite line.

    ReplyDelete
  56. no because a line is infinitely long and never ending. but you can mesure a line segment. i looked up the definition on this link

  57. You cannot measure a line because it is an infinite that goes forever. But you could measure a line segment. P.S. Hi Miss K!!!!!!!!!!!

    No Because a Line Goes On Forever. To Measure A Line It Would Have To Be A Segment.

    ReplyDelete
  59. You can not measure a line because it goes on for ever therefor you cannot measure a line but you can measure a line segment because it stopes at two ends so you can measure it.

  62. Nice job everyone!!!! I'm excited to continue talking about this tomorrow in class! Keep up the great work!

    ps- I love it when you all write comments on the blog! :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. No, you can't because a line is a long mark of band that can go on forever and ever. Sometimes it cannot be measured using one of our man made tools. However, a line segment can be measured. Since a line segment has to stop eventually, and it has two end points, it therefore can be measured.

    P.S: this is GK

    ReplyDelete
  64. Yes, because a line is straight. YOu can put a ruler up near it and measure how long it is(assuming it's not too big)

  66. That sounded really professional!!! Didnt it???


    P.S: this is GK

    ReplyDelete
  67. no, you can measure a line segment but a line is infinity.

    ReplyDelete
  68. My answer is yes and no. Yes, Because if I drew a line on a piece of paper, you could measure it. And no, because some mathematicians think that a line runs infantile, therefore, you could never measure a line that never ends.

    ReplyDelete
  69. You cant measure a line because it goes on forever, but you can measure a line segment.

    ReplyDelete
  70. That last one was me I forgot my name.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Also, reading the comments above, the line segment means that they have ends or points to stop at. If you do not have an end or stopping point, the line will never stop.

    ReplyDelete
  72. No you can not measure a line because it goes on forever. But you can measure a line segment because it stops at a certain point.

    ReplyDelete

    Yes U can because almost everything can be measured. you just need the correct tools for the thing that u r measuring, or the correct information.

  75. NO BECAUSE A LINE GOES ON FOREVER BUT YOU CAN MEASURE A LIN SEGMENT

    ReplyDelete
  76. yes if it is a 2D shape because of the shapes perimeter but if its a regular line not like a piece of rope then no because it goes on forever and so can a ray if its not connected but it would be more tricky to measure a line if it had a curve to it then you would have to use more math. That is my long sentence or paragraph of why you can measure a line or not. Also a line is a 1D shape if you draw it out.

    ReplyDelete
  77. miss k if your reading my other sentence its the longest line sentence about a line ever on your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  78. just saying longest line paragraph/ sentence on your blog ever.

    ReplyDelete
  79. NO YOU CAN NOT A LINE GOES ON FOR EVER AND EVER AND WILL NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER EVER EVER STOP INTILL YOU MAKE IT STOP BUT YOU CAN MEASURE A LINE SEGMENT .

  82. you can NOT measure a line because a line goes on forever so you would never be able to measure it. Yo would be measuring for the rest of your life and still not finish. You can not measure a line but you can measure a line segment. you can measure this because a line segement stops at some point.
