Students learn how to construct triangles to scale using a pair of compasses and protractor. As learning progresses they construct angle and line bisectors using a pair of compasses. Finally, students apply this knowledge to solve problems involving loci about a point and line. This unit takes place in Year 10 Term 2.
In this lesson there are five grade 8 and 9 maths problems for higher ability students.
