How to Use

  • Use the red points on the triangle to adjust the size
  • You can drag the triangle around the workspace by dragging its area, but you will not be able to drag any other object.

Buttons

  • The buttons are meant to be used sequentially, so they will appear in order.
  • The Reset button can be used to start over at any point.

 

  • Why are P(1), P(2), and P(3) collinear? Can you provide a proof?
  • Find the orthocenter of a triangle along with the Simson Line. Now, connect P to the orthocenter. What is the relationship?
