Geometric Constructions

Using interactive tools to make geometric constructions. Using interactive tools to bisect a line segment and an angle. Constructing perpendicular and parallel lines and the perpendicular bisector of a line segment. Constructing shapes inscribed in a circle. Applying geometric constructions in real-world contexts.

Mapped to CCSS Section# HSG.CO.D.12, HSG.CO.D.13

Make formal geometric constructions with a variety of tools and methods (compass and straightedge, string, reflective devices, paper folding, dynamic geometric software, etc.). Copying a segment; copying an angle; bisecting a segment; bisecting an angle; constructing perpendicular lines, including the perpendicular bisector of a line segment; and constructing a line parallel to a given line through a point not on the line. Construct an equilateral triangle, a square, and a regular hexagon inscribed in a circle.
