3--midsegments What is a median? What is an angle bisector? What is an altitude? What is a Perpendicular Bisector? A median in a triangle is the line or
segment drawn from a vertex to the midpoint of its opposite side. An angle bisector in a triangle is a
line or segment that is drawn from
a vertex that bisects (cuts in half)
that vertex angle. An altitude of a triangle
is the line or segment drawn
from a vertex perpendicular
to the side opposite (base),
even if this means extending the
sides of the triangle. A perpendicular bisector is the line or
segment that passes through the
midpoint of a side of a triangle and is
also perpendicular to that side. in Triangles Midsegments What is a midsegment? A midsegment of a triangle is
the line or segment drawn from
one midpoint to another. The
midsegment is always parallel
to one side of the triangle. Welcome ...please move through
