We are beginning to learn HOW TO CONSTRUCT Squares, Rectangles, and Triangles using a RULER, PROTRACTOR, and COMPASS.

This is a skill you have to Practice!!!!

For HOMEWORK TONIGHT...

Use a RULER and a PROTRACTOR to CONSTRUCT a SQUARE, a RECTANGLE, and a TRIANGLE with the measurements I wrote on the board and asked to put in your planner.

If you did not write those measurements down in class...here they are again!!!

SQUARE - with sides that are 6 cm (all angles are 90 degrees)

RECTANGLE - length = 8cm and width = 4 cm (all angles are 90 degrees)
TRIANGLE - Base = 6cm ... base angles = 110 degrees and 40 degrees
Make sure you LABEL all points, sides, and angles

TOMORROW we will be doing the same process with a COMPASS...so please watch the videos below so your understand the steps to drawing each type of figure.

**Intro to Chapter 10 - Measurements**

LO (Homework) - Measuring Lines and Angles / Drawing Angles

Complete the worksheet handout based on the examples given.

We will be beginning a unit on CONSTRUCTING Squares/Rectangles/Triangles using only a COMPASS and STRAIGHT-EDGE (ruler) on Thursday.

Before then...PLEASE REVIEW THE VIDEOS below to understand the techniques for constructing a PERPENDICULAR LINE (used to construct squares and rectangles) and constructing Triangles when only given the length of each side or one angle and the length of one side.

**Constructing Squares/Rectangles and Triangles...with a COMPASS only**
...and a protractor for certain types of Triangles

Constructing a Rectangle or Square (compass only)

Constructing a Triangle (compass only and the occasional protractor)

LO (Homework) Graphing LINEAR EQUATIONS
Do all 7 problems on the Handout
For each problem you will...

1. Read and understand the "RULE" as given

2. Set up and INPUT/OUTPUT CHART

3. Use the given values for X and solve the equation to find Y

4. LIST the "ORDERED PAIRS" ( X, Y) and graph on the coordinate plane.

We will have a Mini-Quiz tomorrow on Graphing LINEAR EQUATIONS so if you are still a bit confused...WATCH THE VIDEO and PRACTICE!!!
Here is the video
