Christmas in Gredos

I'm in Gredos, in a small village with no wifi. So, now that I am in Barco de Ávila, I can post this article to show you how I have decorated my window helped by my small nephew and the grandmothers.
Do you recognize it?

And my son (16 years old) has created a video for a contest: Sekio Claus. Take a look to it, hope you like it.

Discovering KIRIGAMI - space with paper, for Christmas

CHRISTMAS TREES
We are going to construct a pop-up Christmas Tree using another Japanese technique named Kirigami.


Here you will find the template to be downloaded:

Instructions. By Robert Sabuda.

We are going to use color paper and we will use them as hanging trees.


SNOWFLAKES
6-pointed Paper Snowflakes instructions. Kostyn proposed to do them and... it was a great idea! In fact is a good example of polygons and rotational symmetry.





Constructing a parallel through a point

This animation shows how to construct a line parallel to a given line that passes through a given point with compass and straightedge or ruler. It is called the 'angle copy method' because it works by using the fact that a transverse line drawn across two parallel lines creates pairs of equal corresponding angles.

Perpendicular at the endpoint of a ray

This animation shows how to cosntruct a perpendicular at the end of a ray with compass and straightedge or ruler. This construction works as a result of Thales Theorem.

Perpendicular to a line from an external point

This animation shows how to construct a perpendicular to a line through an external point, using only a compass and straightedge or ruler. It works by creating a line segment on the given line, then bisecting it. The bisector will be a right angles to the given line.

Perpendicular at a point on a line

This animation shows how to draw a perpendicular at a point on a line with compass and straightedge or ruler.

Perpendicular bisector

See perpendicular bisector construction. This construction shows how to draw the perpendicular bisector of a given line segment with compass and straightedge or ruler. This construction bisects the segment (divides it into two equal parts, and is perpendicular to it.

Line segment operations

COPYING A LINE SEGMENT
This page shows how to copy a line segment with compass and straightedge or ruler. Given a line segment, this shows how to make another segment of the same length.

ADDING UP LINE SEGMENTS (in your notebooks)

SUBTRACTING LINE SEGMENTS (in your notebooks)

Angles

ANGLES
Definition: A shape, formed by two lines or rays diverging from a common point (the vertex).
Parts: vertex, legs, interior, exterior.

A triangle has three vertex

Animation.

USING A PROTACTOR
To measure angles
Animation. The animated diagram shows how to use a protractor to measure angles. It shows how to measure two angles that are vertical (=opposite) angles and so should be equal in measure.
To draw angles
Animation. This shows how to use a protractor to draw an angle - 42° in this example.
COPYING AN ANGLE
This page shows how to copy an angle. Given an angle formed by two lines with a common vertex, this animation shows how to construct another angle from it that has the same angle measure using a compass and straightedge or ruler.
ADDING UP ANGLES (in your notebooks)
SUBTRACTING ANGLES (in your notebooks)

BISECT AN ANGLE
To bisect an angle means that we divide the angle into two equal parts without actually measuring the angle. How to bisect an angle with compass and straightedge or ruler animation.

CONSTRUCT ANGLES 30º-45º-60º-90º
Construct a 30 degree angle
Construct a 45 degree angle
Construct a 60 degree angle
Construct a 90 degree angle
