Welcome to my Lantern building project here at New Tech High. I'm excited to share some information about how I built my 9th grade lantern prototype here on my blog post. We are creating lanterns for the Napa Lighted Art Festival.
Below you will see photos of my geometry rationales that prove to you that the shapes I am using are Regular Polygons.
How to Create Regular Polygons
1) First get a compass and a straight edge
2) Draw 2 circles
3) Label on X and the other Y
Rationale or Proof
Here's the explanation to why the regular polygon appears the way it does. For example, I made two circles with equal radii so each side of the triangle is equal to the radius.
