Presentation Transcript

### Geometry

Horace, Stephen, Jon

Grade

- You are in high school anywhere from 9th to 12th grade depending on when you take geometry.
- Net Standard: 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.

Station 2

- Copy Segments
- Bisecting Segments

Station 4

- Copying Angles
- Bisecting Angles

Terminology

- Parallel- Being an equal distance apart everywhere. Never Intersect.
- Perpendicular- At an angle of 90 degrees to a given line, plane or surface
- Bisect- To divide into 2 equal parts
- Reflection- A transformation in which the figure is a mirror image of its original form.
- Vertex- The point at which two lines meet to create an angle

Bisecting a segment

- Using a compass draw arch at approximately two thirds the lines length
- Without changing the angle of the compass draw an arch on the other side of the line
- Use a straightedge to connect the two intersections.

Copying a segment

- Begin by drawing a line or ray that it larger then the segment you are trying to copy.
- Using your compass measure the length of your segment.
- Place your compass on the ray and draw an arch. This is now your copied version of your segment.

Copying an Angle

- Begin by drawing a ray that is larger then the length of your original angle line.
- Draw an arch between the angle you a trying to copy. (Length does not matter)
- Copy that arch onto your ray using the same angle on your compass.
- Measure the distance between the two intersections of the arch.
- Copy this measurement onto the ray
- Using a straightedge draw a line through the endpoint of the ray and the intersection of the two arches.

Bisecting an Angle

- Place the compass point on the angles vertex
- At any convenient length of the compass, draw a arch that crosses both lines
- Using each of the archs intersection with the lines, draw two arches through the middle of the angle
- Using a straightedge draw a line from the vertex to the intersection of the two arches In the middle of your angle.
