This talk will be a lucid introduction to the formal mathematics behind Euclidean Constructions, which we all learn in our middle school curriculum. The rules, regulations and restrictions of this type of construction will be discussed in detail. An alternative will also be suggested. We shall also find out how a completely geometric question can be answered using purely algebraic techniques giving rise to an elegant theory introduced in the nineteenth century by a famous French mathematician named Évariste Galois.
