A median of a triangle is a special line segment that connects two pieces of a triangle. This tutorial introduces you to the median of a triangle and shows you how many medians each triangle has!

Background Tutorials

Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.

A math term can really tell you a lot about the thing it's describing. Take the term 'endpoints'. The endpoints of a line segment are just the 'points' located at the 'ends' of the line segment! That's an informative name! Watch this tutorial to learn about endpoints of a line segment.

Know precise definitions of angle, circle, perpendicular line, parallel line, and line segment, based on the undefined notions of point, line, distance along a line, and distance around a circular arc.

A math term can really tell you a lot about the thing it's describing. Take the term line segment. A line segment is just part of a line! In this tutorial, learn about line segments, how to name them, and what the midpoint of a line segment is!

Further Exploration

Prove theorems about triangles. Theorems include: measures of interior angles of a triangle sum to 180°

When you're given the centroid of a triangle and a few measurements of that triangle, you can use that information to find missing measurements in the triangle! This tutorial shows you how it's done.
