Note from the author:
A complete formative lesson with embedded slideshow, mini lecture screencasts, checks for understanding, practice items, mixed review, and reflection. I create these assignments to supplement each lesson of Pearson's Common Core Edition Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry courses. See also mathquest.net and twitter.com/mathquestEDU.

Solve It! Construct a circle and label its center C. Choose any three points on the circle and connect them to form a triangle. Draw three lines from C such that each line is perpendicular to one side of the triangle. What conjecture can you make about the two segements into which each side of the triangle is divided? Justify your reasoning.
