Trapezoid with Median

This is a simple trapezoid with a median, labeling the lengths of both bases and the median on the graph. The objective is to allow the student to explore different trapezoids (all 4 corners move, constrained only by the need to keep the bases parallel) to gain an intuitive understanding of the length of the median versus the bases.
