Midsegment of a Trapezoid
Below is trapezoid ABCD. Answer the following questions. 1. How can you verify that segment EF is the midsegment of trapezoid ABCD? 2. Calculate the following: (AB + DC)/2. Is this measure equal to any other lengths in the diagram? Make a conjecture about the midsegment of a trapezoid. Then check the “Show relationship” box to check your answer. Adjust the trapezoid by dragging its points. Does this relationship still hold?
