In class we started Module 7, learned about compasses and geometric construction.

Materials. All students will need their own compass. They will need these everyday for the remainder of the unit. Not having a compass will make them unable to participate or complete assignments.

If your student needs a compass, as of 2:29pm today, Office Depot on Cedar Hills Blvd has 22 in stock. This is the model I recommend.

Students need to take care to not break the metal tip off and not lose the plastic screw. If a metal tip breaks I can glue it back in fairly successfully. If they lose it, it can be replaced with the head of a nail.

Assignment: No HW, students should have completed the rhombus and square constructions in the 7.1 Task.
