Review Ch. 4 of the text.
Develop a scheme or procedure to geometrically construct the square root of any positive integer, given a reference line segment defined to be of length 1.
Include the steps involved and the illustrations of the straight-edge-and-compass constructions that make each step work.
Make a chart showing how to get to a specific square root. Often this chart will reveal patterns that can then be codified into a procedure.
Use Geometry Explorer™ software to create your construction
