How to Construct an Equilateral Triangle

Students will construct an equilateral triangle given step by step instructions and a visual aid.
Open a blank Geogebra page and use this applet to assist you with this task: 1) Draw a circle with center A and through point B. 2) Draw a circle with center point B and through point A. 3) Mark point C as one of the intersections of the two circles. 4) Connect points A, B, and C to form the equilateral triangle. 5) Drag any point of the triangle to check for consistency, what do you find?
