Script Tools

When using GSP it can become quite tedious to complete basic geometric constructions.  When working a problem that requires the creation of several triangle centers for instance, it can take a lot of time to complete the repetitive constructions.  For this reason, the use of script tools is important and efficient.  A script tool allows a user to immediately create a given geometric construction.  Below is a list of common geometric constructions with a link to a script tool of each.

1. Centroid

2. Orthocenter

3. Circumcenter

4. Circumcircle

5. Incenter

6. Incircle

7. Medial triangle

8. Orthocenter, Mid-segment triangle.

9. Orthic triangle

10. Pedal triangle

11. Center of Nine point circle

12. Nine Point Circle

13. Trisecting a line segment

14. Equilateral triangle, given a side

15. Square, given a side

16. Isosceles triangle, given base and altitude

17. Triangle Centers (H, G, C, and I)

18. Triangle Centers with Euler Line

19. Locus of vertex of a fixed angle that subtends a fixed segment.

20. Divide a segment AB into two parts that form a golden ratio.
