|Class 6 Maths Practical Geometry||Introduction|
This chapter deals with methods of drawing geometrical shapes.
To draw these shapes, various instruments are used. One of the basic instruments is a ruler. A ruler in an instruments box is graduated into centimetres along one edge (and sometimes into inches along the other edge).
Another instrument that is commonly used is a compass.
Compass is a pair – a pointer on one.To mark off end and a pencil on the other. It is used to draw arcs and circles.
Using the ruler and compasses, the following constructions can be made:
