Euclidean constructions

Postby Joseph Malkevitch » Sat Nov 18, 2017 1:41 pm

Dear Colleagues,

While ruler and straight edge constructions in Euclidean geometry are of great historical interest I don't see them as a topic to promote in K-12 education. However, those interested in the circle of ideas that these constructions lead to may enjoy looking at:

where there are "puzzles" related to these ideas that can be worked on in an online environment.

Regards,
