Constructing Regular Polygons

Students learn how to construct regular polygons using a pair of compasses and straight edge to investigate the relationship between interior and exterior angles.  A Microsoft Excel spreadsheet are included as additional resources to support this discovery.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to construct a regular polygon using a pair of compasses and a straight edge.
  • Most students should be able to discover the sum of the exterior angles around a polygon.
  • Some students should be able to discover the sum of interior and exterior angles around a polygon.
