I created these 7 activities to help students perform basic constructions. Each sheet has a work space for the student to make their construction, a printed set of instructions and a completed illustration of a finished construction.The following is a list of the constructions included (each is als
Lesson 2.1: Compass & StraightedgeDigital Lesson format is compatible with Google slides® Paper and Pencil Constructions Lab•Materials: Compass, Straightedge, paper; copied handouts•This lesson lets students explore the power of circles as they create constructions using the traditional geometr
This worksheet allows students to practice the following geometric constructions using a straightedge and compass: copying a segment, copying an angle, bisecting a segment, bisecting an angle, and constructing a hexagon given one side. Students also record the steps they used to create each constru
Used in multiple ways... Show constructions first, have students come up with steps and reasons Show steps first, have students perform the constructions Show a couple, then have students try to explore other options, then show solutions. Lots of possibilities. School internet connection is some
This handout covers the basic of a compass and straight for beginners. It is imperative to have a common understanding of the uses and the parts of a compass to learn constructions. I use this at the beginning of High School Geometry when we first learn to use compasses for constructions.
Students use what they know about geometric constructions to create designs. There are four designs with step-by-step instructions for each. You will download a .zip file that contains two files: one editable .doc file, and one .pdf version of that file for perfect formatting. Note: This activity
Geometry students often like to "play" with their compass and straightedge when they first use them: this activity is exactly what I use to get some mileage out of this urge to play: by just repeatedly drawing full circles (as opposed to arcs), students can generate midpoints, perpendicular lines, p
Introduce students to geometric constructions using string and a straight edge! In this no prep lesson, the PowerPoint or Google Slides presentation with videos guides students in the following constructions: Drawing a circle Constructing a perpendicular bisector Copying an angle Using string is a
The word construction in geometry has a very specific meaning: the drawing of geometric items such as lines and circles using only compasses and straightedge or ruler. Very importantly, you are not allowed to measure angles with a protractor, or measure lengths with a ruler. These are the basic geo
Incorporate technology in your class and let GeoGebra be your key partner in the learning process. This applet uses a virtual straightedge (in centimeters and inches), a virtual protractor and virtual pairs of compasses to simulate some basic geometric constructions that students are required to d
Introduce your students to lines, angles, and perpendicular bisectors early in the year when they are still formulating their understanding of the basic definitions.Students will use a compass and straightedge to create:A segment congruent to a given segmentAn angle congruent to a given angleThe bis
The Euler’s Top Experiment gives students an opportunity to demonstrate mastery with constructions while creating a toy top. Students will use constructions to create an equilateral, isosceles, and right triangle. Using constructions, students will find the orthocenter, incenter, circumcenter, centr
Geometric Constructions - Congruent Line Segments and Angles FoldableThis foldable covers the following:- Vocabulary for Constructions- Constructing Congruent Line Segments with a Straightedge and Compass- Constructing Congruent Angles with a Straightedge and CompassThis product includes pictures of
Students will begin by learning the basics of geometric constructions.Then they will use these techniques as tools to explore their geometric world.They will make unusual designs, discover interesting properties, and demonstrate the Pythagorean Theorem. The hands-on approach fosters greater understa
Constructions: Parallel & Perpendicular Lines Notes and Practice(3 pages total: two pages of notes one page of practice)On the 2 pages of notes, students will follow steps to construct a line parallel to a line passing through a given point and steps to construct a line perpendicular to a line p
Constructions: Copy of a line segment & angle, Perpendicular & Angle Bisectors Notes and Practice(6 pages total: four pages of notes two pages of practice)On the first 2 pages of notes, students will follow steps to copy a line segments and angles using a straightedge and compass. There are
I think the best way for students to learn about the geometric properties of midsegments, circumcenters, and angle bisectors is to have a hands-on activity in which they construct them. This worksheet does that: they construct (using compass and straightedge) the midsegment of a triangle and then d
This is a geometric construction project in which students use a compass and straightedge to construct many different geometric figures. Students will construct, among other things: Napoleon's Triangle Theorem Euler Line Inscribed Dodecagon 9 Point Circle Kite Inscribed Pentagon Divide a segment in
A notebook in which your students can practice their Geometry constructions. I provide step-by-step instructions for each construction. Your students will need a pencil, a compass, and a straightedge. This is a beginner notebook and includes the following constructions: - Congruent Line Segments -
High School Geometry Quiz - Constructions (word - editable)Overall Target: I can prove two triangles congruent. Quiz Learning Targets: I can write clear instructions for a construction.I can construct an equilateral triangles, angles, and angle bisectors using a compass and a straightedge.
This is a leveled assessment for the second standard in the third unit of my Geometry course.This quiz matches the Unit 3 proficiency scale also available on my site.Make formal geometric constructions with a variety of tools and methods (compass & straightedge, string, reflective devices, paper
This high school geometry interactive notebook for constructing the center of a circle provides students with the steps to construct the center of a circle with only a straightedge and compass. This product is part of the larger set of constructions of circles. NOTE: students need to know how to
This packet teaches students step by step to perform basic geometric constructions using a variety of methods (e.g. straightedge and compass, patty/tracing paper, or technology.) Along the way examples are provided for each step. At the end, students get the opportunity to practice what they have
***EDITABLE*** To see if this is a product you want to spend your hard earned money on, see the product by the same name that is in .pdf form!This flipbook has step by step instructions for the construction of congruent segments, perpendicular bisectors, congruent angles, and angle bisectors with t
