Geometry and #CommonCore #ccsimath

I enjoy reading this blog

Here's an attempt.  You'll have to imagine a couple of things since I don't have the right equipment on this computer: the parallel lines were "constructed" and the curve shown is a compass mark of length AB with center at A.

Construction Example 1 - Construct the perpendicular bisector of the line connecting the two points on the cressent.

Construction Example 2 - Construct the pendicular to segment OB through O, intersecting arc AB at R. Then bisect angle AOR to locate P on arc AB.

Construction Example 3 - Construct the perpendicular bisector of segment XY, this line will intersect line l in the desired point O.

Construction Example 4 - Construct the perpendicular to segment AB at A, then bisect it.  At point B, construct an equilateral triangle having one side on segment AB.  Extend the lines to locate point C in triangle ABC.

Still thinking about Construction Example 5
