Subject: Mathematics
Title: Power of Points      Add Bookmark
Description: In this Illuminations lesson, students discover that the Chord-Chord Power theorem, the Secant-Secant Power theorem, and the Tangent-Secant Power theorem are related applications of the Power of Point theorem. Students use their discoveries to solve numerical problems. In addition, there are links to an online activity and other related resources.

Subject: Mathematics
Title: Soccer Problem      Add Bookmark
Description: This student interactive, from an Illuminations lesson, allows students to investigate a soccer problem by changing the location of a soccer player as well as the distance between the player and the goal posts. The angle changes as the player is moved, and students must therefore determine the player s position so that the angle is maximized.
