Compass Constructions activities supplement advanced geometry lessons for students in grades 5–8.Students will enjoy activities that apply fundamental geometric concepts studied in class, such as the definitions and properties of altitudes, angle bisectors, perpendicular bisectors, parallel lines with transversals, parallelograms, and other quadrilaterals. Students will broaden their knowledge by completing construction activities such as Construction Arithmetic, The Infinitesimal and the Golden Ratio, Proofs of Properties, Hilbert’s Theorem, and more.Not only will this book provide students with challenging activities, it also will prepare students for success in formal, proof-oriented geometry that will present itself later in students’ mathematics education.
