How can we define and construct a rhombus?
This dynamic worksheet shows students the steps necessary to take in order to construct a rhombus. Students can see how circle construction and intersection points create equal lengths.

What is the definition of a rhombus?
Construct a rhombus using points, circles,line segments, and intersection points.
hint: If you are unsure of how to construct a rhombus, the steps are listed below:
Draw segment AB.
Draw a circle around A going through point B.
Choose a point C on the circle.
Draw line segment AC.
Draw a circle around C going through point A.
Draw a circle around B going through point A.
Label the intersection of circle C and B point D.
Draw line segment BD and CD.
Hide Circle constructions.
To check that it is a rhombus, drag point A and make sure that the side lengths are equal respective to dilation.
