## What is a construction in geometry?

“**Construction” in Geometry** means to draw shapes, angles or lines accurately. These **constructions** use only compass, straightedge (i.e. ruler) and a pencil. This is the “pure” form of **geometric construction**: no numbers involved!

## What does the word construct mean in math?

: to make or create (something, such as a story or theory) by organizing ideas, **words**, etc. **mathematics**: to draw (a shape) according to a set of instructions or rules.

## How is geometry used in construction?

Architects use **geometry** to study and divide space as well as draft detailed **building** plans. Builders and engineers rely on **geometric** principles to create structures safely. Designers apply **geometry** (along with color and scale) to make the aesthetically pleasing spaces inside. Applying **geometry** in design is unavoidable.

## What are the four basic constructions?

Basic Constructions: **Angle** Bisector, Perpendicular, Videos and Examples.

## What are the 3 types of geometry?

There are **three** basic **types of geometry**: Euclidean, hyperbolic and elliptical.

## What geometry means?

**Geometry** is a branch of mathematics that studies the sizes, shapes, positions angles and dimensions of things. Flat shapes like squares, circles, and triangles are a part of flat **geometry** and are called 2D shapes. These shapes have only 2 dimensions, the length and the width.

## What is an example of a construct?

**Constructs** are broad concepts or topics for a study. **Constructs** can be conceptually defined in that they have meaning in theoretical terms. **Examples** of **constructs** include intelligence or life satisfaction. Variables are created by developing the **construct** into a measurable form.

## What Enable means?

: to make (someone or something) able to **do** or to be something.: to make (something) possible, practical, or easy. technical: to cause (a feature or capability of a computer) to be active or available for use.

## What does crushing mean?

**Crushing** it is a common expression used when someone is doing their job particularly well, or exceeding all of their goals. Unlike the the literal **definition** of the word “**crush**” (to destroy with force to the point of injury), “**crushing** it” has an extremely positive connotation.

## What is geometry used for?

**Geometry** is one of the classical disciplines of math. Roughly translating in Greek as “Earth Measurement”, it is concerned with the properties of space and figures. It is primarily developed to be a practical guide for measuring lengths, areas, and volumes, and is still in use up to now.

## What is the importance of geometry?

**Geometry** is **important** because the world is made up of different shapes and spaces. It is broken into plane **geometry**, flat shapes like lines, circles and triangles, and solid **geometry**, solid shapes like spheres and cubes. **Geometry** helps understanding of spatial relationships.

## What are some jobs that use geometry?

**Career Information for Jobs Involving Geometry**

**Architect**.**Cartographer**and Photogrammetrist.**Drafter**.**Mechanical Engineer**.**Surveyor**.- Urban and
**Regional Planner**.

## Does a point have a size?

In modern mathematics, a **point** refers usually to an element of some set called a space. That is, a **point** is defined only by some properties, called axioms, that it must satisfy. In particular, the geometric **points do** not **have** any **length**, area, volume or any other dimensional attribute.

## How do you construct a special angle?

**Constructing Angles** of 60º, 120º, 30º and 90º

- Step 1:
**Draw**the arm PQ. - Step 2: Place the point of the compass at P and
**draw**an arc that passes through Q. - Step 3: Place the point of the compass at Q and
**draw**an arc that passes through P. Let this arc cut the arc drawn in Step 2 at R.

## Why do we learn constructions in geometry?

Not everyone who loves mathematics loves numbers. **Geometric construction** allows **you** to construct lines, angles, and polygons with the simplest of tools. **You** will need paper, a sharpened pencil, a straightedge to control your lines (to make a straight edge), and a drawing compass to swing arcs and scribe circles.
