Another Way to Divide a Line Segment into n Equal Parts

  • Another Way to Divide a Line Segment into n Equal Parts

    Natan Besteman, John Ferdinands
    A way to divide a line segment into equal parts, discovered by Nathan Besteman while he was a sophomore in high school. It also gives other ways to carry out the construction, and suggests problems and projects for students of elementary geometry. Explores the ways Euclid and the GLaD method solve the problem and provides a synthetic and analytical proof and extensions for students.
