Triangle, Three Medians, Six Concyclic Circumcenters with Dynamic Geometry: TracenPoche Software.
Level: High School, College,
Proposition: Medians AD, BE, and CF split a triangle ABC into six smaller triangles. Prove that their circumcenters O1, O2, O3, O4, O5, and O6 are concyclic
(lie on a circle called van Lamoen circle).
