Geometry Happenings

November 18, 2014

     In Geometry, we have been working on constructions using a compass.  We have copied an angle, bisected an angle, copied a line segment, created a perpendicular bisector of an angle, and created parallel lines.  The students have completed a project where they created their name using only parallel lines and their compass.  Using a compass for the constructions requires a lot of patience, time, and attention to detail.  The constructions using a compass allow the students to complete hands-on activities.  I have included some examples of our name projects.
