Ten problem solving and geometric construction tasks

I’ve written a number of posts the last couple of months which I published in other sites. They are problem solving tasks mostly in geometry using GeoGebra and a few on function, trigonometry and calculus. May I share 10 of them here. The first six are teaching resources which I posted in AgIMat, a site about science and…
