# Construct Shapes

Videos and lessons to help Grade 7 students learn how to draw (freehand, with ruler and protractor, and with technology) geometric shapes with given conditions. Focus on constructing triangles from three measures of angles or sides, noticing when the conditions determine a unique triangle, more than one triangle, or no triangle.

Common Core: 7.G.2

### Suggested Learning Targets

• I can construct geometric shapes using appropriate tools (freehand, ruler, protractor, or technology).
• I can describe the attributes of geometric figures (with focus on triangles).
• I can construct triangles with given angle and side conditions.
• I can explain with given measures, why they form a unique triangle, more than one triangle, or no triangle.
