              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.
