38.) In GHJ, K(2,3) is the midpoint of GH, L(4,1) is
the midpoint of HJ, and M(6,2) is the midpoint of GJ.
Bisectors in Triangles
Toolkit #5.2
Today’s Goal:
1.
To use properties of perpendicular
bisectors and angle bisectors.
Perpendicular Bisector: equidistant from the
endpoints of a segment (cuts SEGMENT in two EQUAL
parts), and makes a RIGHT ANGLE with that segment.

When three perpendicular bisectors meet, that
POINT is called the CIRCUMCENTER.
Find the set of points on the map of D.C.
that are equidistant from the Jefferson
Memorial and the White House.
Ex.1:
CD is the perpendicular bisector of AB.
Find CA and DB.
Angle Bisector: equidistant from the sides of a
triangle – cuts an ANGLE into TWO EQUAL parts.

When three angle bisectors meet, the POINT
is called the INCENTER.
Ex.2(a): Find the value of x,
then find FD and FB.
Ex.2(b):
Check Understanding
a)
According to the diagram, how
far is K from EH? From ED?
b)
EK?
c)
Find the value of x.
d)
Find mDEH.

Bisectors & Graphing
Ch. 5.2 Extension
Today’s Goal(s)
1. To investigate perpendicular and angle
bisectors on the coordinate plane.
Example:
Given points A(1,3), B(5,1), and C(4,4), does C
lie on the  bisector of AB?


Plot points first!
Then determine
whether AC = BC.
#5 Perpendicular Bisector
a. (-2,7) b. (-1,6) c. (0,5)
#6 Angle Bisector
a. (6,5) b. (7,8) c. (4,4)
You are given the points A(4, 8),
O(0,0), and B(12, 0).

Concurrent Lines,
Medians, and Altitudes
Toolkit 5.3
Today’s Goal:
1.
To identify properties of medians
and altitudes of a triangle.
STOP and THINK!
What does concurrent mean?

When three or more lines intersect in
one point, the point at which they intersect
is the point of concurrency.
Median of a triangle: a segment that
connects a VERTEX to the MIDPOINT of the
opposite side.

When three medians meet, the POINT is called the
CENTROID.
The medians of a triangle are concurrent at a point
where the distance from the point to the vertex is
TWICE the distance from the point to the side.
Ex.1(a): Finding Lengths of Medians
D is the centroid of ABC and DE = 6.
Find BE.
You Try…
Ex.1(b): Finding Lengths of Medians
M is the centroid of WDR, and WM = 16.
Find WX.
Altitude of a triangle: a segment that is
PERPENDICULAR to a side, and connects a
VERTEX to the opposite side.

When three altitudes meet, the POINT is
called the ORTHOCENTER.
