This resource from Defence Dynamics looks at the military’s historical (and current) use of constructions and mathematical accuracy in warfare and peacetime defence. Students are asked to draw constructions to represent how the military target hostile forces, stressing the importance of accuracy in calculations which consider projected paths. They will need to be able to construct scale drawings, an angle bisector, a perpendicular bisector, a triangle and a variety of loci. The final activity looks at a penalty shoot-out and how constructions can be used to determine if a goal will be scored.
