Instructional Ideas
  • Have the class brainstorm what other types of figures they could construct using the end points of a line segment and points on its perpendicular bisector
Classroom Considerations
  • Class members should understand the relationship of the points on a perpendicular bisector and the endpoints of the line segment
  • Individuals need to know the classifications of triangles
  • The rubric provides the definitions and wording of the theorem referenced in the solution
  • Contains work samples
  • None
