**"Form” vs. “Construct”**

The teacher may wish to consider using the word “form” instead of “construct” as it appears throughout the problem (e.g., *Construct* a **square **with exactly **¼ the area **of the original square; *Construct* a **triangle** with exactly **¼ the area** of the original square). As in English, the word construct (i.e., construir, construire) evokes notions of erecting physical structures. “Form,” on the other hand, may help more clearly convey to the student that s/he is to manipulate, change the appearance of the sheet of paper.
