What educators are saying

My 9th grade geometry students were able to complete the activity while still being challenged. It was not too difficult or too easy. A "Goldilock" of an assignment.
This was a great activity. The students enjoyed challenging each other to do the more complex designs. Lots of great classroom conversations. The final results look great in the hallway. Thanks


Get creative in Geometry class! These direction sheets guide students to use basic constructions to design their own piece of art that they can then customize.

The designs are made using a series of constructions with a compass and straightedge. The artistic project includes a series of three designs with increasing difficulty level.

With each of the 3 guided art projects that are included, students will get some practice with their different geometry constructions.

These are best if students have seen at least one or two basic constructions before, such as bisecting a line segment.

Students follow the instruction page for each construction and then choose which marks to keep and which to erase to make their design unique. The designs can be colored and displayed.

In addition to basic circles and arcs, the following constructions are included (with guidance):
* perpendicular bisector
* midpoint
* equilateral triangle
* copying a distance
* regular pentagon

The following materials are needed:
- blank paper
- pencil and eraser
- compass
- straightedge
- coloring utensils (optional)

Draw (freehand, with ruler and protractor, and with technology) geometric shapes with given conditions. Focus on constructing triangles from three measures of angles or sides, noticing when the conditions determine a unique triangle, more than one triangle, or no triangle.
