Delving Deeper: Trisecting the Circle: A Case for Euclidean Geometry

Alfred Posamentier 

February 2006, Volume 99, Issue 6, Page 414

Abstract:
From a geometry course for prospective teacher, several methods for dividing a circle into three parts using only Euclidean geometry are explored in this month's Delving Deeper article. This department focuses on mathematics content that appeals to secondary school teachers. The Editorial Panel encourages submissions that pose and solve a novel or interesting mathematics problem, expand on connections among different mathematical topics.
