This is an illustrated step by step guide for constructing an angle bisector. Encourage independence and give to pupils as a worked example or as a revision tool.

# Constructing an Angle Bisector

This resource provides step-by-step instructions for constructing an angle bisector (a line that divides an angle exactly in half) using a compass and a straight edge.

## Why are angle bisectors important?

Angle bisectors have various applications:

• Geometry: Solving problems and creating geometric proofs.
• Design: Creating symmetrical patterns and shapes.
• Real-world: Dividing plots of land or finding equal distances.

## How can this resource help?

This resource supports learning this key construction:

• Clear steps: Provides easy-to-follow instructions.
• Visual aids: Includes diagrams to illustrate each step.
• Practice focus: Encourages hands-on learning of the technique.

## Benefits for learners:

• Develop geometric construction skills.
• Improves spatial reasoning and problem-solving.
• Provides a foundation for advanced geometry concepts.

This resource is perfect for teachers introducing geometric constructions. It's also ideal for independent practice or for parents supporting their children's maths learning at home.
