Construction with ruler and compass, van Hiele model for geometry thinking and Project-based learning
Keywords:Geometry, construction, van Hiele model, project-based learning
We describe how problems of geometric construction using straightedge and compass can be introduced to students through project-based learning. We discuss how these problems can be extended to the upper half-plane model. Furthermore, we discuss the use of these problems to assess advanced levels in van Hiele model for geometry thinking.
