2 Lesson 3.1 Duplicating Segments and ngles (continued) To duplicate using patty paper, simply place the patty paper over the segment and trace it, using a straightedge to ensure the tracing is straight. Investigation 2: Copying an ngle In this investigation, you will copy this angle using a compass and straightedge. D E F Construct a ray that extends longer than a side of DEF. Label the endpoint of the ray G. This ray will be one side of the duplicate angle. Try to figure out how to duplicate DEF on your own before looking at Step 1 in your book. You can use a protractor to check that the angles are congruent. Step 1 shows the first two stages involved in duplicating DEF. The stages are described below. Stage 1: Use your compass to construct an arc with its center at point E. The arc should intersect both sides of the angle. Without changing the opening of your compass, make an arc centered at point G. Stage 2: On DEF, put the sharp end of your compass on the point where the arc intersects EF. djust the opening so that the other end touches the point where the arc intersects ED, and make an arc. Without changing the opening of your compass, put the sharp end of your compass on the point where the arc intersects the ray with endpoint G and make an arc that intersects the original arc. To finish the construction, draw a ray from point G through the point where the two arcs intersect. Use a protractor to verify that G is congruent to DEF. ractice duplicating other angles until you are sure you understand the steps. e sure to try duplicating obtuse angles as well as acute angles. Now, try to duplicate DEF using patty paper instead of a compass. Write a summary of the construction methods you learned in this lesson. 30 CHTE 3 Discovering Geometry Condensed Lessons

3 CONDENSED LESSON 3.2 Constructing erpendicular isectors In this lesson, you Construct the perpendicular bisector of a segment using patty paper and using a compass and straightedge Complete the erpendicular isector Conjecture Learn about medians and midsegments of triangles segment bisector is a line, ray, or segment that passes through the midpoint of the segment. line that passes through the midpoint of a segment and that is perpendicular to the segment is the perpendicular bisector of the segment. segment in a plane has an infinite number of bisectors, but it has only one perpendicular bisector. m n Lines, m, and n bisect. Line m is the perpendicular bisector of. Investigation 1: Finding the ight isector Follow Steps 1 3 in your book to construct a perpendicular bisector of segment using patty paper. lace three points,, and C on the perpendicular bisector, and use your compass to compare the distances and, and, and C and C. In each case, you should find that the distances are equal. These findings lead to the following conjecture. erpendicular isector Conjecture If a point is on the perpendicular bisector of a segment, then it is equidistant from the endpoints. C-5 Is the converse of this statement also true? That is, if a point is equidistant from the endpoints of a segment, is it on the segment s perpendicular bisector? If the converse is true, then locating two such points can help you locate the perpendicular bisector. Investigation 2: ight Down the Middle In this investigation, you will use a compass and straightedge to construct the perpendicular bisector of a segment. First, draw a line segment. Then, follow the steps below. djust your compass so that the opening is more than half the length of the segment. Using one endpoint as the center, make an arc on one side of the segment. (continued) Discovering Geometry Condensed Lessons CHTE 3 31

4 Lesson 3.2 Constructing erpendicular isectors (continued) Without changing the opening of your compass, put the sharp end of your compass on the other endpoint and make an arc intersecting the first arc. The point where the arcs intersect is equidistant from the two endpoints. Follow the same steps to locate another such point on the other side of the segment. Then, draw a line through the two points. The line you drew is the perpendicular bisector of the segment. You can check this by folding the segment so that the endpoints coincide (as you did in Investigation 1). The line should fall on the crease of the paper. The construction you did in this investigation demonstrates the conjecture below. Converse of the erpendicular isector Conjecture If a point is equidistant from the endpoints of a segment, then it is on the perpendicular bisector of the segment. C-6 Now that you know how to construct a perpendicular bisector, you can locate the midpoint of any segment. This allows you to construct two special types of segments related to triangles: medians and midsegments. median is a segment that connects a vertex of a triangle to the midpoint of the opposite side. To construct the median from vertex, use the perpendicular bisector construction to locate the midpoint of C. Then, connect vertex to this point. midsegment is a segment that connects the midpoints of two sides of a triangle. To construct a midsegment from to, use the perpendicular bisector construction to locate midpoints of and. U Then, connect the midpoints. Write a summary of the construction methods T you learned in this lesson. D C 32 CHTE 3 Discovering Geometry Condensed Lessons

5 CONDENSED LESSON 3.3 Constructing erpendiculars to a Line In this lesson, you Construct the perpendicular to a line from a point not on the line Complete the Shortest Distance Conjecture Learn about altitudes of triangles In Lesson 3.2, you learned to construct the perpendicular bisector of a segment. In this lesson, you will use what you learned to construct the perpendicular to a line from a point not on the line. Investigation 1: Finding the ight Line Draw a line and a point labeled that is not on the line. With the sharp end of your compass at point, make two arcs on the line. Label the intersection points and. Note that, so point is on the perpendicular bisector of. Use the construction you learned in Lesson 3.2 to construct the perpendicular bisector of. Label the intersection point M. You have now constructed a perpendicular to a line from a point not on the line. Now choose any three points on and label them,, and S. Measure,, S, and M. Which distance is shortest? M M S Your observations should lead to this conjecture. Shortest Distance Conjecture The shortest distance from a point to a line is measured along the perpendicular segment from the point to the line. C-7 In the next investigation, you will use patty paper to create a perpendicular from a point to a line. (continued) Discovering Geometry Condensed Lessons CHTE 3 33

6 Lesson 3.3 Constructing erpendiculars to a Line (continued) Investigation 2: atty-aper erpendiculars On a piece of patty paper, draw a line and a point that is not on. Fold the line onto itself. Slide the layers of paper (keeping aligned with itself) until point is on the fold. Crease the paper, open it up, and draw a line on the crease. The line is the perpendicular to through point. (Why?) Step 1 Step 2 Constructing a perpendicular from a point to a line allows you to find the distance from the point to the line, which is defined as The distance from a point to a line is the length of the perpendicular segment from the point to the line. The altitude of a triangle is a perpendicular segment from a vertex of a triangle to the line containing the opposite side. The length of this segment is the height of the triangle. The illustrations on page 154 of your book show that an altitude can be inside or outside the triangle, or it can be one of the triangle s sides. triangle has three different altitudes, so it has three different heights. EXMLE Construct the altitude from vertex of this triangle to side C. C Solution Extend side C and construct a perpendicular segment from point to C. C C Write a summary of the construction methods you learned in this lesson. 34 CHTE 3 Discovering Geometry Condensed Lessons

7 CONDENSED LESSON 3.4 Constructing ngle isectors In this lesson, you Construct an angle bisector using patty paper and using a compass Complete the ngle isector Conjecture n angle bisector is a ray that divides an angle into two congruent angles. You can also refer to a segment as an angle bisector if the segment lies on the ray. Investigation 1: ngle isecting by Folding Follow Steps 1 3 in your book to construct the bisector of acute using patty paper. You can tell the ray you construct is the angle bisector because the fold forms two angles that coincide. Now, construct the bisector of an obtuse angle. Can you use the same method you used to bisect the acute angle? Does every angle have a bisector? Is it possible for an angle to have more than one bisector? If you are not sure, experiment until you think you know the answers to both of these questions. Look at the angles you bisected. Do you see a relationship between the points on the angle bisector and the sides of the angle? Choose one of the bisected angles. Choose any point on the bisector and label it. Compare the distances from to each of the two sides. (emember that distance means shortest distance.) To do this, you can place one edge of a second piece of patty paper on one side of the angle. Slide the edge of the patty paper along the side of the angle until an adjacent perpendicular side of the patty paper passes through the point. Mark this distance on the patty paper. Compare this distance with the distance to the other side of the angle by repeating the process on the other ray. Your observations should lead to this conjecture. Mark this distance. ngle isector Conjecture If a point is on the bisector of an angle, then it is equidistant from the sides of the angle. C-8 (continued) Discovering Geometry Condensed Lessons CHTE 3 35

8 Lesson 3.4 Constructing ngle isectors (continued) Investigation 2: ngle isecting with Compass You can also construct an angle bisector using a compass and straightedge. Draw an angle. To start the construction, draw an arc centered at the vertex of the angle that crosses both sides of the angle. Try to complete the construction on your own before reading the following text. Don t be afraid to experiment. If you make a mistake, you can always start over. When you think you have constructed an angle bisector, fold your paper to check whether the ray you constructed is actually the bisector. Constructing the angle bisector: djust your compass so that the opening is larger than half the length of the arc. lace the sharp end of your compass on one of the points where the arc intersects the angle, and make an arc. Without changing the opening of your compass, repeat this process with the other point of intersection. Draw the ray from the vertex of the angle to the point where the two small arcs intersect. EXMLE Construct an angle with a measure of exactly 45 using only a compass and straightedge. Solution Construct a 90 angle by constructing the perpendicular to a line from a point not on the line. (Look back at Lesson 3.3 if you need to review this construction.) Then, use the angle-bisector construction you learned in this lesson to bisect the 90 angle Write a summary of the construction methods you learned in this lesson. 36 CHTE 3 Discovering Geometry Condensed Lessons

9 CONDENSED LESSON 3.5 Constructing arallel Lines In this lesson, you Construct parallel lines using patty paper s you learned in Chapter 1, parallel lines are lines that lie in the same plane and do not intersect. So, any two points on one parallel line will be equidistant from the other line. You can use this idea to construct a line parallel to a given line. Investigation: Constructing arallel Lines by Folding Follow Steps 1 3 in your book to construct parallel lines with patty paper. Notice that the pairs of corresponding angles, alternate interior angles, and alternate exterior angles are congruent. (In this case, all are pairs of right angles.) The next example shows another way to construct parallel lines. EXMLE Use the Converse of the lternate Interior ngles Conjecture to construct a pair of parallel lines. (Try to do this on your own before reading the solution.) Solution Draw two intersecting lines and label them m and n. Label one of the angles formed 1. Label a point on line n. Using point as the vertex, duplicate 1 on the opposite side of line n. Label the new angle 2. Draw line q containing the new side of 2. n n n 2 2 q 1 m 1 m 1 m Notice that line m and line q are cut by a transversal (line n), to form a congruent pair of alternate interior angles ( 1 and 2). ccording to the converse of the I Conjecture, m q. Now, see if you can use the converse of the Corresponding ngles Conjecture or the converse of the lternate Exterior ngles Conjecture to construct a pair of parallel lines. Write a summary of the construction methods you learned in this lesson. Discovering Geometry Condensed Lessons CHTE 3 37

10 CONDENSED LESSON 3.6 Construction roblems In this lesson, you Construct polygons given information about some of the sides and angles In this chapter, you have learned to construct congruent segments and angles, angle and segment bisectors, perpendiculars, perpendicular bisectors, and parallel lines. Once you know these basic constructions, you can create more advanced geometric figures. Example in your book shows you how to construct a triangle if you are given three segments to use as sides. This example also explores an important question: If you are given three segments, how many different-size triangles can you form? ead the example carefully. Example shows you how to construct a triangle if you are given three angles. This example shows that three angles do not determine a unique triangle. Given three angle measures, you can draw an infinite number of triangles. The triangles will all have the same shape, but they will be different sizes. The examples below show some other constructions. EXMLE Using a compass and straightedge, construct with this segment as side and with m 90 and m 45. Solution To construct, extend to the left and construct a perpendicular to through point. To construct, first construct a perpendicular to through point. This creates a right angle with vertex. To create a 45 angle, bisect this angle. To complete the construction, extend the sides of and until they intersect. Label the intersection point.

K I T I K Solution Copy KI and K. ecause KI KE, copy KI on the other side of K to create side KE. E K I To locate vertex T, make a large arc with radius TI centered at point I. Vertex T must be on this arc. ecause TI TE, draw another large arc with radius TI centered at point E. The intersection of the two arcs is point T. Connect points E and I to point T to complete the kite. E T K I 40 CHTE 3 Discovering Geometry Condensed Lessons

12 CONDENSED LESSON 3.7 Constructing oints of Concurrency In this lesson, you Construct the incenter, circumcenter, and orthocenter of a triangle Make conjectures about the properties of the incenter and circumcenter of a triangle Circumscribe a circle about a triangle and inscribe a circle in a triangle You can use the constructions you learned in this chapter to construct special segments related to triangles. In this lesson, you will construct the angle bisectors and altitudes of a triangle, and the perpendicular bisectors of a triangle s sides. fter you construct each set of three segments, you will determine whether they are concurrent. Three or more segments, lines, or rays are concurrent if they intersect in a single point. The point of intersection is called the point of concurrency. Investigation 1: Concurrence You can perform the constructions in this investigation with patty paper or with a compass and straightedge. Save your constructions to use in Investigation 2. If you are using patty paper, draw a large acute triangle on one sheet and a large obtuse triangle on another. If you are using a compass, draw the triangles on the top and bottom halves of a piece of paper. Construct the three angle bisectors of each triangle. You should find that they are concurrent. The point of concurrency is called the incenter of the triangle. Start with two new triangles, one acute and one obtuse, and construct the perpendicular bisector of each side. You should find that, in each triangle, the three perpendicular bisectors are concurrent. The point of concurrency is called the circumcenter. Finally, start with two new triangles and construct the altitude to each side. These segments are also concurrent. The point of concurrency is called the orthocenter. Incenter Circumcenter Orthocenter Your observations in this investigation lead to the following conjectures. ngle isector Concurrency Conjecture The three angle bisectors of a triangle are concurrent. C-9 (continued) Discovering Geometry Condensed Lessons CHTE 3 41

13 Lesson 3.7 Constructing oints of Concurrency (continued) erpendicular isector Concurrency Conjecture The three perpendicular bisectors of a triangle are concurrent. C-10 ltitude Concurrency Conjecture The three altitudes (or the lines containing the altitudes) of a triangle are concurrent. C-11 For what type of triangle will the incenter, circumcenter, and orthocenter be the same point? If you don t know, experiment with different types of triangles (scalene, isosceles, equilateral, acute, obtuse, right). Investigation 2: Incenter and Circumcenter You will need your triangles from Investigation 1 for this investigation. Start with the two triangles for which you constructed the circumcenter. For each triangle, measure the distance from the circumcenter to each of the three vertices. re the distances the same? Now, measure the distance from the circumcenter to each of the three sides. re the distances the same? You can state your findings as the Circumcenter Conjecture. Circumcenter Conjecture The circumcenter of a triangle is equidistant from the three vertices. C-12 Now, start with the two triangles for which you constructed the incenter. Measure the distance from the incenter to each vertex. Then, measure the distance from the incenter to each side. What do you notice? You can summarize your findings in the following conjecture. Incenter Conjecture The incenter of a triangle is equidistant from the three sides. C-13 ead the paragraph proof of the Circumcenter Conjecture on page 178 of your book and make sure you understand it. ecause the circumcenter is equidistant from the three vertices of a triangle, you can construct a circle centered at the circumcenter that passes through all three vertices. circle that passes through each vertex of a polygon is circumscribed about the polygon. Circumcenter (continued) 42 CHTE 3 Discovering Geometry Condensed Lessons

14 Lesson 3.7 Constructing oints of Concurrency (continued) Now, read the paragraph proof of the Incenter Conjecture on page 178. ecause the incenter is equidistant from all three sides of a triangle, you can construct a circle centered at the incenter that is tangent to all three sides. circle that is tangent to each side of a polygon is inscribed in the polygon. Incenter EXMLE Inscribe a circle in S. S Solution To find the center of the circle, construct the incenter. Note that you need to construct only two angle bisectors to locate the incenter. (Why?) S The radius of the circle is the distance from the incenter to each side. To find the radius, construct a perpendicular from the incenter to one of the sides. Here, we construct the perpendicular to S. Now, draw the circle. S S Discovering Geometry Condensed Lessons CHTE 3 43

15 CONDENSED LESSON 3.8 The Centroid In this lesson, you Construct the centroid of a triangle Make conjectures about the properties of the centroid of a triangle You have seen that the three angle bisectors, the three perpendicular bisectors of the sides, and the three altitudes of a triangle are concurrent. In this lesson, you will look at the three medians of a triangle. Investigation 1: re Medians Concurrent? On a sheet of patty paper, draw a large scalene acute triangle and label it CN. Locate the midpoints of the three sides and construct the medians. You should find that the medians are concurrent. Save this triangle. C N C N Now, start with a scalene obtuse triangle and construct the three medians. re the medians concurrent? You can state your findings as a conjecture. Median Concurrency Conjecture The three medians of a triangle are concurrent. C-14 The point of concurrency of the three medians is the centroid. On your acute triangle, label the medians CT, NO, and E. Label the centroid D. Use your compass or patty paper to investigate the centroid: Is the centroid equidistant from the three vertices? Is it equidistant from the three sides? Is the centroid the midpoint of each median? The centroid D divides each median into two segments. For each median, find the ratio of the length of the longer segment to the length of the shorter segment. You should find that, for each median, the ratio is the same. Use your findings to complete this conjecture. C O E D T N Centroid Conjecture The centroid of a triangle divides each median into two parts so that the distance from the centroid to the vertex is the distance from the centroid to the midpoint of the opposite side. C-15 In Lesson 3.7, you learned that the circumcenter of a triangle is the center of the circumscribed circle and the orthocenter is the center of the inscribed circle. In the next investigation, you will discover a special property of the centroid. (continued) Discovering Geometry Condensed Lessons CHTE 3 45

16 Lesson 3.8 The Centroid (continued) Investigation 2: alancing ct For this investigation, you will need a sheet of cardboard and your scalene acute triangle from Investigation 1. lace your patty-paper triangle on the cardboard. With your compass point, mark the three vertices, the three midpoints, and the centroid on the cardboard. emove the patty paper and carefully draw the triangle and the medians on the cardboard. Cut out the cardboard triangle. Try balancing the triangle by placing one of its medians on the edge of a ruler. C N You should be able to get the triangle to balance. epeat the process with each of the other medians. The fact that you can balance the triangle on each median means that each median divides the triangle into two triangular regions of equal area. Now, try to balance the triangle by placing its centroid on the end of a pencil or pen. If you have traced and cut out the triangle carefully, it should balance. ecause the triangle balances on its centroid, the centroid is the triangle s center of gravity. You can state your findings as a conjecture. Center of Gravity Conjecture The centroid of a triangle is the center of gravity of the triangular region. C-16 Notice that it makes sense that the triangle balances on the centroid because it balances on each median and the centroid is on each median. s long as the weight of the cardboard is distributed evenly throughout the triangle, you can balance any triangle on its centroid. 46 CHTE 3 Discovering Geometry Condensed Lessons
