Use the method from class to duplicate the line segment AB. Use the Ray Tool () to start. You can show the labels of a point by using the button. Use the compass tool () to select a distance and then a new point to transfer that distance to. Use the Intersect Tool () to mark the point where your circle intersects the ray. Now use the Distance Measuring tool () to measure both the original segment AB and the duplicate that you made. Verify that they stay the same length even if you move A or B.
Did the length of the line segments always stay the same length?
Duplicate the Angle using the method we discussed in class. Start with the Ray Tool under the line menu()to make the first side of your angle. Use the compass tool () to copy your first distance. Use the Intersect tool () to create the point where the compass intersects the ray. Use the compass tool again to copy your second distance and use the intersect tool again. Then create the second side of the angle using the ray tool.
Now Measure the original and the duplicate angle using the tool. (click on the points in a clockwise order)
Do the angle measures always stay the same even if you move the original angle?
