Construction of a Rhombus
- Rachel DellOrto
How can we define and construct a rhombus? This dynamic worksheet shows students the steps necessary to take in order to construct a rhombus. Students can see how circle construction and intersection points create equal lengths.
What is the definition of a rhombus? Construct a rhombus using points, circles,line segments, and intersection points. hint: If you are unsure of how to construct a rhombus, the steps are listed below: Draw segment AB. Draw a circle around A going through point B. Choose a point C on the circle. Draw line segment AC. Draw a circle around C going through point A. Draw a circle around B going through point A. Label the intersection of circle C and B point D. Draw line segment BD and CD. Hide Circle constructions. To check that it is a rhombus, drag point A and make sure that the side lengths are equal respective to dilation.
