Thought-Process to Discover Knowledge

Welcome to nubtrek.

Books and other education websites provide "matter-of-fact" knowledge. Instead, nubtrek provides a thought-process to discover knowledge.

In each of the topic, the outline of the thought-process, for that topic, is provided for learners and educators.

In this page, a short and to-the-point summary of the four elements of practical geometry is provided.

In practical geometry, we study about constructing

  • line segments,

  • angles

that make different plane-figures like triangles, rectangles, quadrilaterals, etc. Which of the following is a fundamental to practical geometry?

  • constructing a line, an arc, an angle, and a parallel
  • constructing collinear points, equidistant points, equiangular points, and parallel line.
  • both the above
  • both the above

The answer is "both the above"

The fundamental elements of practical geometry are

  1. constructing a straight line using a ruler (which are points collinear to two points).

  2. measuring a distance using a compass and marking an arc (which are points equidistant to the center).

  3. measuring an angle using a protractor and marking a ray with the angle (which are points equiangular to the initial point)

  4. constructing a parallel using set squares (which are points on a line parallel to a given line)

In the course of the lessons, the secondary elements and the end-applications will be explained. For example, bisecting a line or constructing a parallel line using a compass are some examples of secondary elements. The primary elements are used to construct the secondary elements.

And, constructing a square using the length of a diagonal or constructing a parallelogram are some examples of end-applications. These constructions use combination of primary and secondary elements.

Fundamental Elements of Practical Geometry :

  1. constructing a line connecting `2` points

  2. constructing an arc of given radius

  3. constructing an angle of given measure

  4. constructing a parallel at a given distance to a line
