GEOMETRY AND MEASURES:H

**1. Use conventional terms and notations:**

- points, lines, vertices, edges, planes
- parallel lines, perpendicular lines, right angles
- polygons, regular polygons and polygons with reflection and/or rotation symmetries
- use the standard conventions for labelling and referring to the sides and angles of triangles
- draw diagrams from written description

**2. Use the standard ruler and compass constructions**

- perpendicular bisector of a line segment
- constructing a perpendicular to a given line from/at a given point
- bisecting a given angle)
- use these to construct given figures and solve loci problems
- know that the perpendicular distance from a point to a line is the shortest distance to the line

**3. Angles:**
