# Geometry construction portfolio

For this portfolio, you are using the constructions that you have learned to create with a straightedge and a compass in

the past few units. This portfolio has several parts and you must complete and submit each portion to receive full credit.

Please see the outline below and use the checklist to make sure you donâ€™t miss anything.

Part 1: (see page 2 of the lesson)

Draw at least four of the following constructions separately. Make sure that your constructions include the extra marks

(such as arcs) made during the construction process.

ï‚· a bisected angle

ï‚· two congruent angles

ï‚· two congruent segments

ï‚· an equilateral triangle

ï‚· two parallel lines, one of which is drawn through a given point

ï‚· a perpendicular line drawn through a given point on a given line

ï‚· a perpendicular bisector

ï‚· a perpendicular line drawn from a point not on a line to a line

ï‚· a quadrilateral with at least one pair of parallel lines

Part 2: (see page 3 of the lesson)

1. Create a wall paper design using at least four of the constructions listed above. Your pattern should fill an 8.5â€ x 11â€

sheet of paper.

2. Number each of the four elements on your drawing and create a key naming them

3. Write instructions for creating the constructions and your design. Your instructions should be detailed enough to

demonstrate that you understand how to create the constructions and a friend could make your design from the

instructions you wrote.

Part 3: (see page 4 of the lesson)

Write a full paragraph reflecting on any difficulties you had in creating the constructions, your design or the instructions.
