Original sources of mathematics provide many opportunities for students to both do mathematics and to improve their problem solving skills. It is also interesting to explore original sources in new ways with the use of technology. In this activity, students can gain experience with dynamic geometry software and enhance their geometric intuition by working through a construction given by Euler in 1783.
