Subject: Importance of Orthocenter
I have a question concerning the concurrent points of a triangle. I recently taught a section on this topic for my clinical experience for a high school geometry class. I had the question of "why do you we need to know the orthocenter?" Which, to me, is a good question because according to their textbooks, the orthocenter had no real signficance or relation to the triangle (unlike the centroid, incenter, and circumcenter). Has there been any significance found for the orthocenter?
