Exploring the properties of the Circumcenter

Added: 04 Mar 2021 Contributor: PDST Resource type: Simulation

Having engaged with the tents problem students can now investigate the properties of the circumcenter by dragging the points and recording the effect on the location of the circumcenter.

How it maps to the curriculum


Strand: 2. Geometry & Trigonometry

Strand unit: 4. Transformation Geometry, Enlargements

Suggestions for use: Ask students to move the file and consider the following questions: Under what circumstances would the circumcentre as the position for the fire not be suitable? Classify the triangle. Where is the fire located in each case?
