Definitions Construction – Use a straight edge and a compass to make geometric figures Straightedge – is a ruler with no marking on it Compass – Geometric tool used to draw circles and parts of circles called arcs Perpendicular Lines-two lines that intersect to form right angles. Perpendicular bisector-of a segment is a line that is perpendicular to the midpoint LT: I can make basic constructions using a straightedge and a compass

Prove by construction why you cannot construct a perpendicular bisector with a compass opening less than AB. 1 2 Start with AB. Step 1: Put the compass point on point A and draw a short arc. Make sure that the opening is less than AB. 1 2 Step 2: With the same compass setting, put the compass point on point B and draw a short arc. Without two points of intersection, no line can be drawn, so the perpendicular bisector cannot be drawn. LT: I can make basic constructions using a straightedge and a compass

You can make a sketch or measure and draw a segment. These may not be exact. A construction is a way of creating a figure that is more precise. One way to make a geometric construction is to use a compass and straightedge. LT: I can make basic constructions using a straightedge and a compass
