Teacher Notes    

CONCEPT 1 – Construct a tangent line from a point outside a given circle to the circle.

I have no idea why a construction would be an honors only objective????  Don’t get me wrong…. to do this construction you need to think creatively, but the construction itself is not difficult.

Teacher Note -- The physical construct is very easy.... but to think out the solution is much more difficult. The method is not an easy one to realize. It might be good to review the inscribed angle on a diameter relationship before this construction and it might trigger a few revelations for students.
