HW: Practice and memorize the steps for the following constructions:
1) Duplicate a segment
2) Duplicate an angle
3) Bisect an angle
4) Construct the midpoint of a segment
5) Construct the perpendicular bisector of a segment

Today: Constructions! Using the compass and straightedge to draw certain figures. NO MEASURING with a ruler or protractor is allowed!!!!
There are many methods for doing these things but we are currently interested in the GEOMETRIC CONSTRUCTION method. So, forget about measuring.
Please try to get your own compass and protractor if you haven't already. It's necessary to practice at home.
