Line and rotational symmetry in 2D and 3D.  e.g., know properties of triangles, quadrilaterals, and circles directly related to their symmetries. For example, given a rectangle, parallelogram, trapezoid, or regular polygon, describe the rotations and reflections that carry it onto itself. Recognize symmetry properties of the prism and the pyramid.

Construction. Make formal geometric constructions with compass and straight edge only. Copy a segment; copy an angle; bisect a segment; bisect an angle; construct perpendicular lines, including the perpendicular bisector of a line
segment. Construct an equilateral triangle, a square, and a regular hexagon inscribed in a circle. Construct the inscribed and circumscribed circles of  a triangle.  Construct a tangent line from a point outside a given circle to the circle.
Angle measurement in degrees.  Read and make scale drawings.

Teacher Reference

Basic Geometric Constructions

 

Note:  This PowerPoint is designed to allow students to have concise but thorough notes to copy on how to perform the constructions listed below.  These constructions are easy to learn, but also easy to forget.  Students can have difficulty figuring out how the construction is from just looking at a completed construction. 

 

The animations are sufficient to give students an idea.  However, it is best if you can demonstrate on a document camera, show a video, or even better, walk around the room and help students as needed (and have students help each other).

 

The constructions covered in this lesson are:

 

  • Copy and angle
  • Copy a line segment
  • Bisect an angle
  • Perpendicular bisector
  • Triangle

 

Big Idea

 

When constructing basic shapes students get a more concrete understanding of the properties of these shapes.  Students need to understand how to accurately use geometric construction tools.

 

Key Knowledge

 

This lesson is written for Cambridge IGCSE, however, the constructions apply to all geometry.  Students need to understand how to do the basic constructions listed.

 

Pro – Tip

 

Accuracy is king.  Ensure that you’re the lines are aligned between the protractor and whatever is being measured or drawn.  Have a light touch with a compass as it will move if you press too hard.
