Drawing a Line Tangent to a Circle

Explore lines tangent to a circle. In this math lesson, students manipulate circles and lines on a TI calculator. They draw a circle  and analyze perpendicular lines intersecting the circle in only one place. This activity works best if each student has a TI-83 or TI-84 for their own viewing.
