Constructing a Median - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

A median is a line segment from the vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side in a triangle. In every type of triangle, the median will be contained within the polygon, unlike altitudes which can lie outside the triangle. When constructing a median, we first find the midpoint of the side opposite the desired vertex, then use a straightedge to connect the midpoint and the vertex.
