Assignment #5: Script Tools

by:

Laura Singletary

Below are some script tools that may be useful when working with Geometer's Sketchpad:

Centroid - the point of concurrency of the medians of a triangle

Circumcenter - the point of concurrency of the perpendicular bisectors of a triangle

Orthocenter - the point of concurrency of the altitudes of a triangle

Circumcircle - a circle that passes through all three vertices of a triangle

Incenter - the point of concurrency of the angle bisectors in a triangle

Incircle - a circle inscribed in a triangle

Medial Triangle - the triangle formed by connecting the midpoints of the sides of a triangle

Orthocenter, Mid-segment triangle - the triangle formed by connecting the vertices of the midpoints of teh segments that run from the orthocenter to the vertices

Orthic Triangle - the triangle formed by connecting the feet of the altitudes of a triangle

Pedal Triangle - the triangle formed by selecting a point a point in the plane, constructing lines from that point to the sides of the triangle, and connecting the three points of intersection with the triangle
