# Geometry

## Objective

Draw two-dimensional geometric shapes using rulers, protractors, and compasses.

## Common Core Standards

### Core Standards

?

• 7.G.A.2 — Draw (freehand, with ruler and protractor, and with technology) geometric shapes with given conditions. Focus on constructing triangles from three measures of angles or sides, noticing when the conditions determine a unique triangle, more than one triangle, or no triangle.

• 7.G.B.5 — Use facts about supplementary, complementary, vertical, and adjacent angles in a multi-step problem to write and solve simple equations for an unknown angle in a figure.

?

• 4.MD.C.6

## Criteria for Success

?

1. Use a protractor to draw angles of given measures and determine measurements of drawn angles.
2. Use a compass to draw circles with given measurements.
3. Understand that more than one quadrilateral can be formed using the same set of side lengths.

## Tips for Teachers

?

The following materials are needed for this lesson: rulers, protractors, compasses, and blank paper. Provide students with the tools at the beginning of the class, and discuss which tools are needed for each problem (MP.5).

### Problem 2

Draw a rectangle with dimensions 3 inches x 5 inches.

Can you draw a different quadrilateral with side lengths 3 in., 3 in., 5 in., and 5 in.? If so, draw the shape and name it.

### Problem 3

Draw a segment ${AB}$ that measures 3 cm. Use a compass to construct two circles:

• a circle with center $A$ and radius ${AB}$
• a circle with center $B$ and radius $BA$

### Problem 4

A triangle has an angle measure of 50°. The two side lengths that form this angle are $3$ inches and $4\frac{1}{2}$ inches long.

Draw the triangle described above. Then determine the measure of the third side and the other two angles.

## Problem Set

? The following resources include problems and activities aligned to the objective of the lesson that can be used to create your own problem set.

• Include examples of triangle constructions with angle measurements, including both angle measurements that make a triangle and those that do not add up to 180°.

?

### Problem 1

Draw a square with side lengths equal to 4 inches. Label your square $ABCD$.

### Problem 2

Draw a circle with center at point E and a diameter of 8 cm. Draw and label the diameter as line segment $FG$.
