16 Geometry Constructions Playlist

In this playlist you will find 16 tutorials that show you the step-by-step process of creating various geometry constructions from scratch.  All that you need is a protractor, compass and straightedge.  Each of the constructions are concise and very easy to follow.  If you have just 3-6 minutes you will be able to construction …

• Perpendiculars to a point on a line or in space
• Perpendicular bisectors
• Parallel lines
• Congruent angles
• Altitudes & medians
• Various shapes (Equilateral triangles, a rhombus, a kite, a hexagon)
• Circumcenter & incenter of triangles
