3
What is a Compass? A compass is a hinged device for drawing circles.

4
Galileo's Proportional Compass The first proportional compass was invented in Padua in 1597. The inventor, Galileo, saw three main uses of his compass: 1.As a bomber's sight, 2.Calculation of the height of a star above the horizon and 3.Measuring the inclination of the slopes of a wall.

5
needle lead Preparing the Compass 1.Sharpen the lead. 2.Adjust the needle and the lead so that the tip of the needle extends slightly more than the lead.

6
Using the Compass 3.To draw a circle, apply enough pressure to the needle by holding the compass handle between thumb and index fingers. 4.To complete drawing the circle, revolve the handle clockwise.

7
Drawing without Compass Here's a way to draw a circle using something normally already on hand.... 1. 1. Simply cut a strip of 1" wide and a little longer than the radius of the circle needed. 2. Punch a hole in one end, where the point of a pencil could be placed through for drawing. 3. Place a pin on the other end precisely the distance from the pencil hole which represents the radius of the circle.

8
Drawing without Compass To draw a circle, stick the pin into your drawing surface, put a pencil in the hole and rotate around the pin 360 degrees.

9
World Freehand Circle Drawing Championship 2007 Alexander Overwijk, a teacher from Ottawa, Canada, is one of the fastest Circle Drawers in the world. He draws a close-to-perfect 3 foot wide circle in less than two seconds.

10
Your Turn 1.Draw a circle that has a radius of 4 cm on the given origami paper. 2.Cut the circle into a semi circle and a quarter circle. 3.Paste the quarter circle and the semi circle on a Journal Writing sheet. 4.Find the perimeter of each shape. 5.Show clearly how you derived the answers.
