Cactus: The Centres of a Triangle
Hyde, Hartley
Australian Mathematics Teacher, v65 n2 p28-30 2009
This is the first of two articles which describe how to use "JavaSketchPad" to explore the centres of a triangle. This introductory exercise is suggested in the GSP "Workshop Guide". Students can use "JavaSketchPad Interactive Geometry" (JSP) at home at no cost. They are likely to impress their parents with their enthusiasm for geometry and all they need on their computer is a Java enabled web browser and a suitable editor and they do not need to be on-line to use "JavaSketchPad". JSP provides a simple macro level introduction to programming that encourages further exploration.
