GSP Constructions

Everyone needs a good set of tools to rely on when solving mathematics problems. Using Geometer's Sketchpad to explore mathematical ideas requires a good set of tools as well. Below is my personal set of 24 mathematical tools that can make your explorations easier. When you need to find the centers of a triangle, instead of having to find them all step by step, just use my handy dandy Triangle Centers tool. This way you can spend more of your time exploring, rather than wasting time constructing things that you have done before!

 Centroid Orthocenter Circumcenter Incenter Incircle Medial Triangle Orthocenter, Mid-Segment Triangle Orthic Triangle Pedal Triangle Center of 9 Point Circle Nine Point Circle Trisecting a Line Segment Equilateral Triangle, Given a Side Square, Given a Side Isosceles Triangle, Given Base and Altitude Triangle Centers (H, G, C, and I) Triangle Centers With Euler Line Locus of a vertex of a Fixed Angle That Subtends a Fixed Segment Divide a Segment AB Into 2 Parts That Form a Golden Ratio Pentagon, Given a Radius Pentagon, Given a Side Hexagon, Given a Side Octagon, Given a Side
