Square in a Circle

For Students 9th - 12th Standards
This is much easier than putting a square peg in a round hole. Scholars use geometric construction methods to create an inscribed square in a circle. The preferred method for this worksheet is using a compass and straightedge.
Lesson Planet

Geometry: Constructions

For Teachers 9th - 12th Standards
Sometimes a compass and straightedge are the correct tools for the job. Scholars use a given line segment to make geometric constructions. These include constructing a copy of the line segment, constructing an equilateral triangle, and...
