An angle bisector at vertex A of the parallelogram ABCD meets the straight lines BC and CD at the points K and L respectively.
For instance, the points equidistant from two points A and B are on the perpendicular bisector of the segment AB.
It is worth noting that prior to or in the course of making this proof, students can fold perpendicular bisectors to the base in non isosceles triangles to "establish" that only in isosceles triangles does the perpendicular bisector pass through the opposite vertex.
Each cell may be perceived as the intersection of open half-planes bounded by the perpendicular bisectors of lines joining one inclusion center with each of its neighbors.

During the initial sessions in the first year, the participants examined some animations created by the research team with examples of two problem-based lessons about perpendicular bisectors. The animations illustrated students' work and teaching actions for using students' prior knowledge in those lessons (Gonzalez & DeJarnette, 2016).
The Dirichlet domain of [GAMMA] is based on the bisectors of some chosen center and its images by [GAMMA].
And the perpendicular bisectors of each side intersect at a single point called the circumcenter?
