The project is a more involved problem than those used for the
Problem of the Week. In some cases, it may be helpful to use
Sketchpad or some other drawing program to help in preparing
a solution.

Solutions will be accepted from teams of no more than four students.
The team submitting the most complete solution will receive Geometry
Forum t-shirts. Solutions must be received by Friday, January 28 to
be considered. Anything may be used to reach a conclusion, but
solutions must be submitted electronically. Computer-constructed
documents, such as Sketchpad sketches or graphics files, may be
sent - the answer does not have to be just in text form.

Note: You don't have to _prove_ the answer to submit your solution.
Just provide a convincing argument for your claim. This may
include an explanation with accompanying pictures, or perhaps a
well-documented Sketchpad sketch.

Submissions should include the names, grade(s), and school of the
team members. Mail them to pow@forum.swarthmore.edu. DO NOT
POST YOUR ANSWER! If you have questions about how to submit any
accompanying documents, just send mail. You may send NeXT mail
to fetter@hogan.swarthmore.edu. Please cc a copy to
pow@forum.swarthmore.edu so that we'll know to check mail there.
Submissions are welcome from non-high school students, but you
won't be eligible for the awesome t-shirts! :-)

Project of the Month for February 1994

What figure is formed when the consecutive midpoints of the sides of a
quadrilateral are joined? What if the original quadrilateral were a
rectangle? A kite? An isosceles trapezoid? A square? A rhombus?
Other shapes? Explain why you think your answer is true.
