# GGB Basics - Toolbar

TLDRIn this tutorial, we delve into the functionalities of the GeoGebra toolbar, specifically the construction toolbar. The video demonstrates how to create geometric shapes using basic tools like point, line segment, and perpendicular line. It showcases the creation of a rectangle by defining points and lines, emphasizing the tool's ability to maintain geometric properties like perpendicularity. The video also introduces the move tool for object manipulation and the intersect tool for creating points at line intersections. Finally, it uses the polygon tool to create a shaded rectangle, highlighting GeoGebra's interactive and dynamic capabilities.

### Takeaways

- π§ The video explores the 'construction toolbar' at the top of the GeoGebra interface.
- π Each icon in the toolbar opens a dropdown menu with selectable tools.
- π The video demonstrates creating a rectangle using basic geometric objects.
- π§© Starting with a point, a line segment is created by clicking on point A and then another point.
- β₯ Using the perpendicular line tool, a line is drawn perpendicular to the first segment at point B.
- π The move tool allows dragging objects while maintaining geometric relationships.
- π Creating a new point on a line ensures it stays on that line, as demonstrated with point C.
- β₯ Another perpendicular line is created, forming what looks like a rectangle.
- π The intersect tool places a point at the intersection of two lines, creating point D.
- π Moving point A shows that the rectangle maintains its shape due to its construction.
- π₯ Using the polygon tool with four points creates a shaded rectangle.

### Q & A

### What is the top toolbar referred to as in the video?

-The top toolbar is referred to as the 'construction toolbar' in the video.

### How does the construction toolbar work?

-The construction toolbar contains square icons that drop down a menu with selectable tools for creating various geometric objects.

### How do you create a point in the graphics view using the toolbar?

-To create a point in the graphics view, you select the point tool from the toolbar and click anywhere in the view.

### What is the process of creating a line segment from a point?

-To create a line segment, you select the segment tool, click on the starting point 'a', move the mouse away from 'a', and click again to create the second point and the segment.

### How does the perpendicular line tool function?

-The perpendicular line tool is used by clicking on an existing segment to create a line that is perpendicular to it, and you can choose where to place this perpendicular line.

### What happens when you move points that were created using the perpendicular tool?

-When you move points that were created using the perpendicular tool, the lines remain perpendicular because the tool ensures the relationship is maintained.

### How can you place a point on a specific line?

-You can place a point on a specific line by using the point tool and hovering over the line until it snaps into place.

### What is the intersect tool used for?

-The intersect tool is used to create a point at the intersection of two lines by hovering over the lines and clicking.

### How does moving the points affect the shape of the rectangle created?

-Moving the points affects the shape of the rectangle in that it maintains the rectangle's properties as it was constructed to be a rectangle.

### What is the polygon tool and how is it used?

-The polygon tool is used to create a polygon by selecting four points that define the corners of the desired shape, such as a rectangle.

### What happens when you use the polygon tool on the corners of a rectangle?

-Using the polygon tool on the corners of a rectangle creates a filled polygon that represents the rectangle with its sides defined by the segments.

### π οΈ Exploring the Construction Toolbar

The video begins with an exploration of the construction toolbar, a set of tools located at the top of the interface. The presenter refers to it as the 'construction toolbar' due to its utility in constructing geometric shapes. Each icon in the toolbar opens a dropdown menu with various selectable tools. The video demonstrates how to use these tools by creating a rectangle. Starting with creating a point, then a line segment from that point, and subsequently using the perpendicular line tool to create additional lines. The presenter highlights the ability to move objects around while maintaining geometric relationships, such as perpendicularity, due to the tools' construction logic. The video also shows how to create points on lines and use the intersect tool to find intersection points of lines, ultimately constructing a rectangle.
