We compared and contrasted points of concurrency in a triangle to their analogs in a tetrahedron. Certain circles and spheres associated with these points of concurrency were discussed. Cabri 3D was used to model and help visualize the properties and relationships between the various points and segments in the two-dimensional and three-dimensional cases.
