PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Greetings from Alaska,

These five classical constructions will illustrate the five ways to determine that a quadrilateral is a parallelogram. Students will need a compass and straightedge.

This activity pairs with section 8.3 of McDougal Littel geometry: Proving Parallelograms. I have used this as an in class activity as well as a take-home assignment.


1] Construct a parallelogram by constructing opposite sides parallel.
