Geometry Unit 1 Lesson 7 Assessment
Column A (choose two of the following) Column B (choose one of the following) Construct a line segment and copy it.
Construct an angle and copy it.
Construct a line segment and bisect it.
Construct an angle and bisect it.
Construct parallel lines.
Construct a perpendicular line through a point on the given line. Construct a perpendicular line through a point not on the given line. Construct an equilateral triangle inscribed in a circle. Construct a square inscribed in a circle.

Construct a regular hexagon inscribed in a circle.
Part 2: Explanation:
Using complete sentences, explain how you created two of the three constructions from part 1. To create a line segment and copy it, I connected points a and b to create a line segment. Then, I took my compass and placed the tips on points a and b to measure it. I placed my compass on point c and drew another line segment connecting the line to point d and so created my copied line segment. To create the hexagon inscribed in a circle, I created points n and o and drew a circle around them making the two points my radius. Then, I measured points n and o to create point p on the circle and keeping the same measurement I created point q on the circle and repeated this process until I had created points all around the circle (r, s, and t). Finally, I connected the point p to point q then, to point r and so on until I had a hexagon. Part 3: Analysis:

Using complete sentences, answer each of the following questions: Which method do you find easier—making constructions by hand using a compass and straightedge or constructing using technology? Why? Making constructions by hand using a compass and straightedge is the method I find easier because when using technology, you must go clicking on every other icon to perform a task but when constructing by using hand using a compass and straightedge, you don’t need to do that since everything you need is in front of you.
