This Yardwork in Segments interactive also includes:

Stretch your knowledge of ratios to the coordinate plane. The interactive allows pupils to set the endpoints of a directed line segment and form a right triangle. Using rubber bands, users visualize the line segment divided into equal lengths. Finally, scholars find the coordinates of the point that divides the segment into a given ratio.
