Isogonic or Jacobi's Theorem: Isogonals and Concurrent Point with Dynamic Geometry: TracenPoche Software.
Level: High School, College,
Proposition: Through vertices of a given triangle
ABC, we draw two lines isogonal conjugates with respect to the
corresponded angle. Prove that the lines connecting each vertex
of the given triangle with the intersection point of the
isogonal lines through the other vertices, AA', BB', and CC' are
concurrent at one point J called the Jacobi Point.

The isogonal conjugate line to BC' is the line BA' obtained
by reflecting the line BC' on the angle bisector of angle B;
in the figure above: angles ABC' = CBA'. Similarly AC' and
AB' are isogonal conjugates (angles BAC' = CAB'), and CA'
and CB' are isogonal conjugates (angles ACB' = BCA').

conjectures and gain mathematical insight that is less
readily available with static drawings by hand.
