Description

These 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.

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)
