Understanding Geometric Constructions
Aimed at advanced upper elementary and middle school students. 24 activities allow your students to explore traditional geometric constructions using only a compass and a straight edge. Students are first guided through the concrete constructions using a compass and a straight edge. They are then moved into more abstract geometric concepts the use of Cabri Jr. for the TI-83/TI-84 calculator. Each lesson is designed to engage students in group activities and analysis of concepts. Open ended questions are included with each lesson to encourage higher level thinking skills. Constructions include: Constructing congruent Segments Constructing The Midpoint of any Given Segment The Mascheroni Construction of Finding the Midpoint of a Segment Constructing Congruent Angles Constructing the Bisector of an Angle Constructing an Equilateral Triangle Constructing a Perpendicular Bisector of a Given Segment Constructing the Perpendicular to a Line at a Given Point On the Line Constructing the Perpendicular to a Line at a Given Point Not on the Line Constructing a Parallel to a Given Line Constructing a Square Constructing a Right Triangle Constructing an Isosceles Right Triangle Constructing an Isosceles Trapezoid Constructing the Orthocentre of a Given Triangle Constructing the Centroid of a Triangle Constructing a Tangent to a Circle at a Point On the Circle Constructing a Tangent to a Circle Through a Point in the Exterior of the Circle Finding the centre of a Circle Circumscribe a Circle About a Given Triangle Inscribe a Circle in a Triangle Divide a Given Segment into Specified Number of Congruent Segments Constructing a Fourth Segment in Proportion to Three Given Segments Constructing a Segment Whose Length is the Geometric Mean of Two Other Segments ***For those who want to use the calculator to perform these constructions please note that the TI-83/84 comes preloaded with the application. No additional purchases are required.*** This product is now available as an e-book for your Apple iPad, iPhone, and Mac devices, as well as your Android devices through the Google Play Book Store.
