Geometrical construction is one of the interesting topics in geometry and most of us like constructing geometrical figures using compass & ruler. We follow certain processes to complete the construction of the geometrical figures and this process follows certain logical arguments based on properties of shapes and the relation between different geometrical shapes. However, most of our experience reflects two major challenges in the construction of geometrical figures. The first one is following certain processes without understanding the justification of the processes and the second one is not exploring different ways of constructing the same geometrical figure. Therefore, it is necessary to take care of these two major challenges during our classroom teaching.
