How to Construct a Centroid of a Triangle

Centroid Construction Steps

1. Draw a triangle. 2. Measure one of the sides of the triangle. 3. Place a point at the midpoint of one of the sides of the triangle. 4. Draw a line segment from the midpoint to the opposite vertex. The segment you just created is called a median. 5. Repeat steps 2-4 for the remaining two sides of the triangle. 6. Label the point where all three medians intersect. This point is the centroid.
