|Go to:||http://www.mathopenref.com/secantsintersecting.html (opens a new window)|
An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the "Intersecting Secants Theorem". The applet shows a circle and two secant lines intersecting at a point outside the circle. The secant points and the external point are draggable. As you drag them the secant lines are redrawn and a realtime computation on the applet shows that the product of their segments are always the same. By dragging two secant points together, the Tangent-Secant Theorem is also demonstrated.
Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. After use in the classroom, student can access it again from any web browser at home or in the library with no login required.
