For some people, making constructions is easy.

For others, its hard. Very hard.

Ask me, I can’t even make a straight line with a ruler.


These tips will help you, even if you find making constructions easy.

  1. Keep a geometry box with everything – ruler, compass, protractor
  2. Keep a sharpener and an eraser.
  3. Have 3 pencils – 1 in compass, 1 for drawing lines, and 1 spare (Pro tip: Have long pencils, divide it in half if someone needs it)
  4. Make sure compass is working fine.
