In this activity you will learn the essential compass constructions we will be using throughout this course. These are the basic skills you will use to perform more complex constructions as we progress through the course. There are many ways to do these constructions, but the methods presented here are ones that most readily translate to compass-straightedge constructions you would use with paper, pencil, and construction tools.
