The Cyclic Quadrilateral Theorem states that for a quadrilateral inscribed in a circle, the measures of opposite angles must add to 180 degrees. Drag the points and observe the angle measures to see how this theorem holds true.

##### Euclids Elements - Book 2 - Proposition 14
One of my favorite apps because it looks deceptively simple, but takes some really creative thinking. This app creates a square (in red) that has the same area as a given quadrilateral.

##### Curve Area
E is the midpoint of AD and F is the midpoint of BC.  A closed curve is made by joining the cubic spline whose control polygon is EABF to the spline whose control polygon is FCDE. Can you identify a relationship between the area of the curve and the area of the polygon ABCD?

##### Epic Circle Trace 3
Four points are located proportionally around a circle, according to four different functions of t. A figure connecting the four points is traced through t. What are the four functions? Look at the .gx source for the answer. Tip: press "go" to animate t at a constant rate from 0 to ∏ and back, looped.
