10/16 -- LAMC High School: Ruler and Compass Constructions of Regular Polygons -- Prof. Christoph Thiele

A regular n-gon is a polygon with n sides of equal length and all angles between adjacent sides equal. An alternative description is that all corners of a regular n-gon lie on a fixed circle, and the angle between two adjacent corners, as seen from the center of the circle, is pi/n . The theme of this session is to construct different regular n-gons.
