Construct an Altitude of a Triangle

In this tutorial students learn how to use a compass and a straightedge to construct an altitude of a triangle. Once the altitude is constructed the students verify that the angle created by the altitude is a right angle using a protractor.

A triangle has 3 altitudes. In this video we will create a single altitude.
