# 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.
