Prepare the Compass
To set up the compass correctly, it is important to place the pencil tip and the compass point together to form a single point. Fix the pencil with the adjusting nut, and you are ready to begin!
Once the pencil is inserted into the compass you have created the first geometric form.
Correct answer: Dot
Let’s clarify the definitions of a dot, point and node.
A dot represents the zero dimension and is not connected to any form. Adding up an infinite number of dots in one direction will create a line.
When we place the compass on a point on the line we choose one of these dots over the rest. Should this be at either end of the line, it is called an endpoint.
When two or more lines (curves) intersect, we call it a node. Here, we find two dots superimposed over each other. Adding more lines or curves will add more dots to the node respectively.
