Proofs That Involve Chords, Angles, and Arcs. Part 1

This is a collection of proofs that has chords forming inscribed angles, intersecting congruent arcs, or intersecting angles, or similar embedded triangles. Proofs show a step by step solution that highlights all features in the associated figure, as the proof is built. Use your time to take advantage of interacting with the lesson solving the listed problems using your stylus and the marker tools menu at the top of the screen.
