1
**Section 1.5 Special Points in Triangles**

2
CONCURRENT The point where 3 or more lines intersect

3
**What are some things you already know about triangles or circles?**

TRIANGLES & CIRCLES What are some things you already know about triangles or circles?

4
**PREVIOUS FACTS… How many sides does a triangle have?**

What kinds of triangles are there?

5
**WHAT IS A PERPENDICULAR BISECTOR??**

6
**PERPENDICULAR BISECTOR**

Forms right angles. Splits the segment in half

7
**PERPENDICULAR BISECTORS & TRIANGLES**

Now let’s combine perpendicular bisectors and triangles.

8
BEGIN BY… Finding the perpendicular bisector of each side of the triangle.

9
WHAT CAN WE CONCLUDE? What happens when these 3 lines intersect? What is formed?

10
**Perpendicular Bisectors**

The perpendicular bisectors of a triangle ____________ at a single __________.

11
EXAMPLE

12
CIRCUMCENTER The intersection point of the perpendicular bisectors of a triangle

13
**Circumcenter of an Obtuse Triangle**

14
**WHAT IS A ANGLE BISECTOR??**

15
ANGLE BISECTOR Splits the angle in half

16
**ANGLE BISECTORS & TRIANGLES**

Now let’s combine angle bisectors and triangles.

17
BEGIN BY… Finding the angle bisector of each angle of the triangle.

18
WHAT CAN WE CONCLUDE? What happens when these 3 lines intersect? What is formed?

19
Angle Bisector The angle bisectors of a triangle __________ at a single _________.

20
EXAMPLE

21
INCENTER The intersection point of the angle bisectors of a triangle

22
**INSCRIBED & CIRCUMSCRIBED CIRCLES**

23
**INSCRIBED Inside the triangle**

Just touches the three sides of the triangle.

24
**INCENTER The center of an inscribed circle**

Another definition of Incenter: The center of an inscribed circle

25
CIRCUMSCRIBED Outside the triangle Contains all 3 vertices

26
CIRCUMCENTER The center of a circumscribed circle

27
**A couple of other definitions you need to know**

28
Altitude A perpendicular line segment from a vertex of a triangle to the line containing the opposite side. How many altitudes can a triangle have?

29
Median A line segment from a vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side.

30
Centroid The point where the 3 medians meet
