Geometry: How to Make a Hexagon and an Equilateral Triangle

This short demonstration show how to construct a hexagon and an equilateral triangle using just string and straightedge, or in today’s terms a compass and a ruler.

We are reading the book “String, Straightedge and Shadow” by Julia Diggins for our geometry unit for homeschool. We learned how to make six equal divisions in a circle to construct a hexagon.

I’ll also show you how to make a single equilateral triangle.
