Exploring Centers of a Triangle: Part 2

Students model and solve a real-world problem by constructing the centroid of a triangle. They explore relationships of the medians of a triangle and investigate how the centroid partitions each of the medians. Students investigate the medians of a triangle and the conjecture the following theorems: A median divides a triangle into two triangles with equal area. The three medians of a triangle divide the triangle into six triangles with equal area.
