Medians of a Triangle
- Mathew Purser
We are now going to construct the medians of a triangle. Medians are lines that connect the midpoint of a triangle's side with the opposite vertex. In the triangle below, use your midpoint tool to find the midpoint of each side then connect these points with the line segment tool. If you need help, use the video but try to construct this on your own.
Think about it!
What do you notice about the medians? If you make the triangle acute what changes? What about right? What about obtuse? Do you notice anything else that is special?
