An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate that in similar triangles, ten items are always in the same ratio to each other (perimeter, three sides, three altitudes, three medians). As you drag one triangle to resize it, it remains similar to another and the ratios of sides and medians is calculated as you drag. They can be seen to be the same at all times.
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.
