1  4.6 Medians of a Triangle

2 Activity 4.6 Intersecting Medians

3 Vocabulary  A MEDIAN of a triangle is a segment from a vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side.  A CENTRIOD is the point where the three medians of a triangle meet.

4 Example 1  Draw a median

5 Intersection of Medians of a Triangle Theorem  The medians of a triangle intersect at the centroid, a point that is two thirds of the distance from each vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side.
