 Description  
 Median of a Triangle:  A segment is a median of a triangle if and only if its endpoints are a vertex of the triangle and the midpoint of the side opposite the vertex.

Since there are three vertices and three sides in a triangle, there are three medians. Medians can be formed in all types of triangles.

 

Does the median always fall inside the triangle? If so, why do you think so? If not, why do you think not?

In any triangle, construct all three medians. Do they all meet at a single point?
