**Two-Point Perspective
Drawing**
**This project is created as part of the
****M2T2
project**** with MSTE. There are
several different formats you can use to explore persepctive drawing
in geometry.**

**GSP Directions**

**Draw your “Horizon” Segment
(Horizontal) AB The endpoints are your vanishing
points.**
**Somewhere below this segment draw a
vertical segment CD (Remember to hold shift to make it
straight.**
**Construct segments AC, AD, BC,
BD**
**Select segments AD and DC and
construct points on them. **
**With these points selected also
select segment CD and choose construct parallel
line.**
**Construct intersection points from
these parallel lines and segments AC, and CB.**
**Construct segments GE, HF and hide
the parallel lines.**
**Your box is beginning to take
shape.**
**Construct segments AH and GB and
their intersection point.**
**Make the edges of your box by
constructing segments GI, IH, GC, CH, DF, ED.**
**Hide the segments that you did not
just create and you should have your box and your horizon segment
remaining.**
**Now move points C, D, F, and
E.**
**How does your box behave when you
move these points?**
**Move F, or E toward the vanishing
points. How does this influence the perspective of your
box?**

**Java
Simulation**

**Use the click boxes to create a drawing
of what was described above. Use the "r" key to reset. Try moving the
Red Points when you have created the entire box.**

**Put a Top and Bottom and Sides on this
Box!**
