Diagonals Cut Eachother

Drag point C to find special ways in which the diagonals AC and BD cut eachother. [url]www.scottfarrar.com[/url] | @farrarscott Teachers: note the parallelogram and trapezoid as special cases -- but after the students have played with it. Challenge students to find other locations for C where segments are equal. Can you find a location where blue = green? blue = pink? blue = orange? three segments equal? a different three segments equal?
