12. What would happen if the rules of geometry are changed?

13. What is geometry based on?

14. What are the components of geometry? How can we play aournd with them to create some conclusions or answer some questions?

Flocci Activities

Store

Geometrical Instruments exploration

1. Use a compass to draw a circle. Draw a straight line in any direction from the center. Make another circle of the same size by moving the center by one centimeter on the straight line.

2. Use a compass to draw a circle. Draw a circle of same size using ay point on the circumference of the circle. Draw another circle of same size from any point on the circumference of the new circle and so on.

3. Explore making circles of different sizes, using a compass - but with same center..

4. Make lines (use a Protractor) all starting from the same point (on a base line) - each line is of a diff length, diff angles to the base line.

5. Similarly make triangles of diff angles but either same side or same angle but diff size or mix and match of same.

6. Explore making angles, draw at 20deg, 50 degs etc. In this case keep the base line same.

7. Use set squares to make different parallel lines. Slide them and see what happens to these parallel lines as we extend them.
