Centroid of a Triangle

  1. Drag the vertices or the sides of a triangle and observe what happens. 
  2. What do you observe?

Sorry, the GeoGebra Applet could not be started. Please make sure that Java 1.4.2 (or later) is installed and active in your browser (Click here to install Java now)

The centroid of the triangle is the point where its three medians meet. The median is the segment connecting the vertex and the midpoint of the side opposite to it.

I have a tutorial  on how to locate a triangle centroid. You may want to check it out.
