A pair of congruent triangles holds the key to this unusual Sketchpad ellipse construction. The link to the activity itself is to a zip file that contains both the activity in pdf format and the corresponding sketch, as well as a second sketch for further exploration.
This is a free sample activity from Exploring Conic Sections with the Geometer's Sketchpad.
