Unit 6 Sample Work - Points of Concurrency
There are three major airports that you are concerned with - one in Amman, one in Damascus, one in Beirut. Your task is to find a location for a fourth airport that will service the airports in all three cities. You may use the triangle points of concurrency to help you. Play with the widget below to show each point of concurrency and move the airport to each location. On the next few slides of the Nearpod lesson, you will answer the questions below. Make sure to take a screenshot of the airport at each point of concurrency to enter on the coming slides. Questions: 1. What does the Incenter mean for this situation? 2. What does the Circumcenter mean for this situation? 3. What does the Centroid mean for this situation? 4. What does the Orthocenter mean for this situation? 5. What is the BEST location for the fourth airport? How did you make your decision? What did you think about? What arguments can you make that your location is BEST?
