# Intersecting Chords

Students learn how to derive and apply the properties of intersecting chords in a circle.

As the lesson progresses, the problems become more complex, involving algebraic manipulation and solving quadratic equations. Students start by calculating specific segment lengths using the chord length formula. They then advance to proving and solving quadratic equations that arise from intersecting chord relationships.
