Description:
  1.  

    Define perpendicular bisector.

  2.  

    Present how if a point is on the perpendicular bisector of a segment, then it is equidistant from the endpoints of the segment.

  3.  

    Present how one consequence of the perpendicular bisector theorem is that the perpendicular bisectors of a triangle intersect at a point, called the circumcenter, that is equidistant from the vertices of the triangle.

  4.  

    Demonstrate how to construct a perpendicular bisector of a segment.

 

This packet should help a learner seeking to understand perpendicular bisectors.
