*Drawings*of geometric figures are created using measuring tools such as a ruler and protractor.

__Constructions__are methods of creating these figures without the benefit of measuring tools. Generally, only a pencil, straightedge, and compass are used in constructions.

*Sketches*are created without the use of any of these tools.

*A compass can be used to create two equal segments, a copy, instead of using a ruler to measure.*A picture of a completed 30-60-90 triangle construction is included below. Using the provided tools in the applet, can you create one yourself?If you are successful, be sure to

__add your name__to your completed sketch and

__take a screenshot__of it! Be sure to include the

__measurements__for the

__slopes__that create the right angle!
