Background Tutorials

Determine the coordinates of a point that is a given fractional distance less than one from one end of a line segment to the other in one- and two-dimensional coordinate systems, including finding the midpoint

Want to find the point midway between two locations? Then you're looking for the midpoint! The midpoint of a line segment is the point located midway between the endpoints of the line segment. This tutorial tells you about the midpoint of a line segment. Take a look!

Further Exploration

Verify theorems about the relationships in triangles, including proof of the pythagorean theorem, the sum of interior angles, base angles of isosceles triangles, midsegments, and medians, and apply these relationships to solve problems

When you're given the centroid of a triangle and a few measurements of that triangle, you can use that information to find missing measurements in the triangle! This tutorial shows you how it's done.
