Concurrent
Pronunciation: /kənˈkɜr ənt/ Explain
Click on the blue points and drag them to change the figure.
The red points are the points of concurrency.
 Manipulative 1  Concurrent Created with GeoGebra. 

Two or more geometric figures
are concurrent at a
point
if they share that point^{[1][2]}.
The shared point is called the point of concurrency. A point
of concurrency the same thing as an
intersection.
Manipulative 1 shows several figures. Points where the figures are concurrent are
red. Click on the blue points in manipulative 1 and drag them to change the figure. If
the red points disappear, the figures are not concurrent.

Concurrent lines
Click on the points and drag them to change the figure.
What can you say about two lines that are not concurrent.
 Manipulative 2  Concurrent Lines Created with GeoGebra. 

Two straight
lines
have either 0 or 1 concurrencies. If two lines have 0 concurrencies,
the lines are
parallel.
If they have 1 concurrency, the lines are not
parallel. Click on the blue points in manipulative 2 and drag them to change the
figure. Note that the two lines might intersect outside of the view window
of manipulative 2.

Discovery
Click on the blue points and drag them to change the figure.
The red points are the points of concurrency.
 Manipulative 3  Concurrent Obects Created with GeoGebra. 

Use manipulative 4 to find the answers to the following questions.
 What is the least number of concurrencies of an
arbitrary
circle and an arbitrary square?
 What is the greatest number of concurrencies of an
arbitrary circle and an arbitrary square?
