1. Construct triangle ABC.

Measure (calculate) =

2. Construct line segment AB.

**AB**, construct "point on object", label as **X**.

**A** and **X**,
construct "segment".

**X** and **B**,
construct "segment".

**AX**, measure
"length". **AX =**

**XB**, measure
"length". **XB =**

**AB**, measure
"length". **AB =**

3. Construct line segment XY.

**XY**, construct
"point at midpoint", label as **M**.

**X** and**
M**, measure "distance". **XM = **

**M** and **Y**,
measure "distance". **MY =**

**XY**, measure
"length". **XY =**

**XY** longer
and shorter. Does your conjecture about the midpoint of a segment
hold true?

4. Construct an angle ABC. Make ABC = 70 degrees.

**A**, **B**,
**C**. Construct "angle bisector".

**D**.

5. Construct a quadrilateral ABCD (4 sides).

6. Construct a pentagon ABCDE (5 sides).
