More Parallel Line Theorems

Students learn the following theorems related to parallel lines. If 3 parallel lines form congruent segments along one transversal, then they form congruent segments along every transversal. If a line intersects the midpoint of one side a triangle and is parallel to another side of the triangle, then it intersects the midpoint of the third side of the triangle. If a segment joins the midpoints of two sides of a triangle, then the segment is (a) parallel to the third side of the triangle, and (b) half the length of the third side. Students are then asked to solve problems related to these theorems using Algebra.
