ASSET Geometry Test: Geometric Constructions Objectives
Scores from the ASSET assessments are used by community and technical colleges when making placement decisions for incoming students. The ASSET Geometry Test consists of 25 questions which you will be asked to complete in 25 minutes. Use this chapter to prepare for questions on this test that will measure your understanding of how to construct geometric lines, angles and triangles.
1. Geometric Constructions Using Lines and Angles
Watch this video lesson to learn about geometric construction and how you can copy line segments and angles without using any numbers. All you need is a straight edge and a compass.
2. Line Segment Bisection & Midpoint Theorem: Geometric Construction
Watch this video lesson and you will learn how to bisect a line segment without measurements using just a compass and a straight edge. You'll also learn about the midpoint theorem, which lets you calculate the midpoint if you have the measurements.
3. Constructing a Parallel Line Using a Point Not on the Given Line
Watch this video lesson, and you will learn how to draw parallel lines with just a compass and a straightedge. Also, learn why you would want to be able to do this in real life.
4. Constructing Perpendicular Lines in Geometry
In this video lesson, you will see how to use geometric construction to draw perpendicular lines. Learn why geometric construction is useful. Also find out the only two tools in addition to your pencil that you need to do this.
5. Constructing an Angle Bisector in Geometry
Watch this video lesson to learn a cool way to split an angle in half. You can use this method to split a pie slice in half where you can be sure each side is equal.
6. Constructing the Median of a Triangle
If you have one triangle and want to divide it, you can use a median line. Medians have special geometric properties that we'll learn about in this lesson.
7. Constructing Triangles: Types of Geometric Construction
When you're asked to construct a triangle, it's time to break out that compass and straight edge! In this lesson, find out how to construct triangles no matter what you're given.
