**Unit 3: TOOLS OF GEOMETRY**

*CONCEPT - VISUALIZATION***How would you explain, demonstrate, and apply the construction process?**

What is the role of Geometric Construction in Engineering, Construction, Architecture and Design?

How do we use Geometry to make art and design appear true to life?

How do we use Geometry to make art and design appear true to life?

**The following constructions are the basis for the unit. We will complete the constructions by using a compass and straightedge AND using Geometry Software**

Construction #1: Duplicate a segment

Construction #2: Duplicate and angle

IXL C.7

Construction #3: Perpendicular Bisector of a segment

IXL B.9

Construction #4: Perpendicular to a line from a point not on the line

IXL D.2

Construction #5: Perpendicular to a line from a point on the line
