Loci are a set of points with the same property. Loci can be used to accurately construct lines and shapes. Bearings are three figure angles measured clockwise from North.

Triangles and other shapes can be accurately constructed using a protractor, a pair of compasses and a ruler.

In order to draw a triangle, three properties are needed:

- SAS - Side Angle Side
- ASA - Angle Side Angle
- SSS - Side Side Side

The lengths of two sides and the size of the angle in between are needed.

Make an accurate drawing of a triangle with lengths 4 cm and 6 cm with an angle of 40° in between.

The sizes of two angles and the length of the side in between are needed.

Make an accurate drawing of a triangle with the angles 40° and 70°, with a side of length 8 cm in between.

The lengths of all three sides are needed.

Make an accurate drawing of a triangle with sides of length 3 cm, 5 cm and 6 cm.

As with all constructions, ensure that the construction lines are not rubbed out. These show that the triangles were accurately constructed.
