Second try was a little better. 4.03 I'm best at bisecting angles.

I scored a 4.48, but there were somethings I just don't remember from school like bisect. I'll try it again when my son gets home from school.

Just line that line up in the middle of the angle. I hold a piece of paper up to eliminate the uneven lines.

2.44 on one try. Is that good? I know I was off on the first one (parallelogram) because the mouse jumped a little.

I actually managed a 0.0 on one of the right angle tests.
