Choose Constructions (scroll down to find); then pick construction of your choice. (EX - perpendicular to a line from a point on the line... which is needed for right triangles and squares). Watch and practice until you get it.
Homework was assigned to prepare for the quiz:
HW #13 - p 158:1-10 (first 5 are matching) and a 7-question worksheet that we started in class.
Today we learned how to bisect angles and why it works (every point on the angle bisector is equidistant from the sides of the angle). We discussed how this would enable us to construct all kinds of angles... like 45 degrees, 30 degrees, 75 degrees, 135 degrees, etc.
We practiced constructing medians and altitudes in triangles, writing up our definition of altitude and C-7 - The shortest distance from a point to a line is along a perpendicular to the line from the point. (p 153-4).
We started a worksheet in class to prepare us for the quiz next week. Worksheet is downloadable below.
