 Emma's Blog :) This blog is for Miss Jovanovich's algebra and geometry classes to share ideas, ask questions, and reflect on what skills and topics we are studying. If we are lucky, we might even get a chance to connect with other students studying the same stuff.

Weekly Blog 11 Hello everyone!

This past week in geometry we learned all about points of concurrency in a triangle. A concurreny point is where 3 or more lines all intersect in one point. The four lines that have concurrency points are medians, altitudes, perpendicular bisectors, and altitudes. Each one has a specific name for its point of concurrency. Our teacher, Ms. Jovanovich, taught us this acronym to help us remember, MAPA COCI (where the M corresponds with the C). Here it is in action:
Median- Centroid
Altitude- Orthocenter
Perpendicular bisector- Circumcenter
Altitude- Incenter

I hope this helps you, I know it sure helped me!
Until next time,
Emma
