Task 1 Construct a circle in which two, or more, angles are constructed at the circumference, standing on the same arc

. Action 1. Click on the tab labeled T1 in your workbook. 2. On the EDIT Menu, select PREFERENCES. Click on the UNITS tab. For Distance, select cm for the Units and tenths for the Precision. For Angle, select degrees for the Units and tenths for the Precision. Click OK. 3. On the TOOLBOX Palette, select CIRCLE. Click once to set a centre, and then click some distance away to construct a large circle. 4. On the TOOLBOX Palette, select POINTER. Click the mouse on a blank part of the worksheet. Click on the point on the circumference of the circle. On the DISPLAY Menu, select HIDE POINT. 5. Click the mouse on a blank part of the worksheet. Click on the circumference of the circle. On the CONSTRUCT Menu, select POINT ON CIRCLE. 6. Repeat step 5. to place another point on the circumference. Click and drag each point to place them on the upper semicircle. 7. Click the mouse on a blank part of the worksheet. Click on the leftmost of the two points. On the DISPLAY Menu, select LABEL POINT, and label this point A. 8. Repeat step 7. using the rightmost point and label it B. 9. Repeat steps 5. to 8. to place two points on the lower semicircle which will be labeled M (leftmost) and N. 10. On the TOOLBOX Palette, select SEGMENT. Click on each of the following pairs of points to connect them with straight lines : A and M, A and N, B and M, and B and N. 11. On the TOOLBOX Palette, select POINTER. 12. Click the mouse on a blank part of the worksheet. Click on the points A, M and B in that order. On the MEASURE Menu, select ANGLE and the value of the angle will be displayed. 13. Repeat step 12. with the points A, N and B. Answer Sheet a) Write down your measurements for ∠AMB and ∠ANB. b) What do you notice about these two angles ? c) Move the points A, B, M and N around the circumference. Write down what you notice about the angle measurements.

Construct the figure shown alongside. Points A, B and P are three points on the circumference of a circle. Ensure that the points A, B and P can be moved around the circumference. Measure the angles at the three points.

P

Action 1. Click on the tab labeled T5 in your workbook. 2. On the EDIT Menu, select PREFERENCES. Click on the UNITS tab. For Distance, select cm for the Units and tenths for the Precision. For Angle, select degrees for the Units and units for the Precision. Click OK. 3. Use some or all of the tools mentioned below to construct and label a triangle within a circle. For details on how these tools operate, see the Useful Tools Pages (p. 7, 8 of these notes).

Answer Sheet a) Write the procedure that you have used for your construction. b) Write down your values of ∠PBA, ∠BAP, and ∠APB. c) Move P around the circumference. What happens to the angle value at P ? d) Move A and B around the circumference. What happens to the angle values at these points when they are moved around ? e) Construct a triangle on the same page, with measured angles. Move each vertex in turn around the page. What happens to the angle values at each vertex when they are moved around ?
