Constructing Polygons

Try to do things in different ways in GeoGebra. This activity shows different ways to construct “polygons” (figures with several straight sides). Use the “drag test” to check how the different methods make a difference in the dependencies of the lengths of the sides. Then use the three methods to make your own figure with six sides. Note that these polygons can look different as you drag their points. However, they always remain the same kind of polygons, with certain constraints—like equal sides, depending on how they were constructed.
